Music in the Woods - Cancelled for 2021

Many thanks to all of the volunteers that made the 2019 event successful!

Enjoy the sounds of music on a beautiful afternoon into evening at Oregon Ridge. The Nature Center hosts this annual event inviting local musicians and bands to perform at this family-friendly festival. Music from soloists/groups will be playing anything from folk, bluegrass, rock and more on an outdoor stage. Visitors can bring their own instruments and join in at the impromptu jam sessions by the nature center building. We will have workshops on getting to know the dulcimers. Vendors and crafts for kids will be available all day including face painting. There will be hot dogs and a food truck for hungry audiences. We encourage you to bring your own lawn chairs or picnic blankets. This event is rain or shine. If weather is not on our side, the venue gets moved inside and we continue the fun in the nature center. We will end the night with a campfire and s'mores! Click here to see the 2019 flyer.

If you enjoy folk, ballad, rock or other music and want to shine your light, this is a free venue unlike any other. To participate, just call the Nature Center to sign-up for a spot. You need not be a professional; beginner, intermediate or advanced musicians are welcome.

For those who just want to watch, listen, and learn, admission to Music in the Woods is FREE. There's no better way to spend a spring day with friends and family than at this melodious gathering. Just lay back and relax to the music, sing along, take a chance on a raffle, meet some good folks, have your cheek painted, and lunch on food from our vendors. There will be a number of vendors displaying, demonstrating, and selling handcrafted instruments and other musical fare. If you have your own instrument, bring it along and join a jam session. Or join a "Meet the Instrument" seminar. And if the spirit takes hold, ask to perform on stage if there's an opening. Anything is possible at Music in the Woods.
