August 4-5, the Harmony Arts Jamboree will be held at Hawkwood Farm in Myersville, MD. This arts and music festival will feature two full days of tunes, artistic talent, and workshops out the wazoo. The best part? While you're having a great time, you'll also be doing good as this event benefits the Frederick Memorial Hospital Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund! If you're thinking this location sounds slightly off the beaten path, in reality it's only a short distance from I-70 near Frederick (roughly a 30 minute drive from the Panhandle).
Who's jamming at this jamboree? My latest obsession, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong*, the always lovely Lucas & The Lovelys, Hard Swimmin' Fish, The Zion Hearts, The Steel Wheels, and Cotton Jones to highlight a few. Here's the latest lineup as of post time (click to enlarge):
And the workshops? Pretty wow-worthy! You can take in everything from Flying Yoga to Belly Dancing for Beginners to DIY Didgeridoo to name a few. For more information on the workshops, check out the official website: http://www.harts-jam.com
Tickets for the festival are $20 a day or $35 for the whole weekend (kids under 13 are free!). Like all great festivals, camping is available and costs a mere $10 per car. Tickets are available HERE and be sure to check the "NO" list since neither camp fires nor furry friends are permitted.
NOTE: this is a BYOB event--alcohol will not be sold on site, so stock up on ice and pack your favorite party cooler with your canned (glass is a no-go) frosty beverage of choice.
