Admission and Tickets
Admission to the exhibit area is as follows:
Admission to each Player Workshop is $35.00. Player workshops are limited to 25 participants.
Tickets to the Festival and Workshops can be purchased from The Music Emporium, one of our generous sponsors.
Exhibition Area: 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM
For security reasons, we cannot allow guitars, other than those of our exhibiting builders, to be carried around or out of their cases at the festival. All visiting guitars MUST be checked in. They will be held in a secure room until you're ready to leave the show.
If you're bringing a guitar for a workshop, obviously we'll simply hold your instrument before and after your class. This security rule will be enforced by some humorless, broad shouldered men. Bootleggers/party crashers/builders not in the show will not be allowed to show their instuments on the hotel grounds. Refer back to those broad shouldered security men. Thanks for not testing our resolve on this point.
