Thanks to all the great musicians and fans who made the 2013 Snuffy Jenkins Festival a great day for everybody involved. The Snuffy Jenkins Festival will return in September 2014 at its new home, Globe Park, in Forest City, NC.
The mission of Snuffy Jenkins Festival is to preserve, celebrate, and support the continued development of our local and regional musical tradition, and to honor the legacy of Dewitt "Snuffy" Jenkins, an iconic and much-loved entertainer and innovative banjo player. The festival showcases the best in local and regional bands, with an emphasis on bluegrass music and its close relatives in the acoustic music tradition.
The Snuffy Jenkins Festival offers free admission for kids as well as free music and storytelling workshops offerred by truly great musicians and teachers. The festival also provides an opportunity for fans and historians of Snuffy Jenkins and the other great banjo pioneers from our region an opportunity to gather and share their knowledge and recollections. Jamming is encouraged, so bring your instruments! Food vendors will be on hand, and picnic tables, restrooms, and an air-conditioned visitors' center make Globe Park a wonderful location for this unique event.
Tickets are $10 for adults; kids get in free! For advance tickets, and for all your musical needs in general, visit our friends at B Sharp Music in Spindale.
