This years 2011 Festival of the Woods is Saturday, August 20th. Since the festival is still in its infancy you will need to procure an invitation if you are not already on the list. (Think of it as Studio 54 for the wood minded by invitation only). We are looking for musicians who want to jam, blue grass, and jazz and indie.

Attention to everyone who embraces the transformation of wood through their craft or art. Please mark you calendar for the next Festival of Woods, Saturday and Sunday August 13th and 14th 2011. Check back in a few days and we will have the slide show up along with some video from last years event.

Larry’s  love of working with wood gave him the idea to hold a festival the same weekend as the Hessel Boat Show.  He thought that maybe some of the wood boat builders might enjoy stopping over to camp and visit with other wood workers , craftsman and artisans.
