Camp Houston is a feature of our Festival in May.
Houston started his music and civic journey at a very young age. He got a tremendous amount of support throughout his career and always wanted to give that same support back to youngsters he encountered. At HoustonFest, Camp Houston will be dedicated solely to just that – YOUTH! Youth picking porch/stage, jam sessions, dance and music workshops.
Petting Zoo At Camp Houston!!
- Be sure to visit the Instrument Petting Zoo at Camp Houston Friday and Saturday. The purpose of the ZOO is to offer children and adults opportunity to have hands-on experience with an acoustic instrument: Banjo, Mandolin, Fiddle, Guitar, or Ukulele! Experienced players will be on hand to demonstrate and help. The Zoo is Sponsored by The Music Makers Guild. The Guild provides instruments from the “Mom & Pop Stoneman Lending Library through which the Guild makes instruments available to the community to borrow. Information about the various Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM) program in our area will also be available at the Zoo!
