ODPC Dulcimer Festival

Osceola County Fairgrounds, 101 Recreation Avenue, Evart, Michigan 49631

July 16-18 - Evart is known as the "Grand Daddy" of all dulcimer festivals, the ODPC FunFest is the largest gathering of hammer dulcimer players in the world. Each year on the third weekend in July, several thousand musicians and music lovers come home to the fairgrounds in Evart for the ODPC FunFest. Whether you are new to the instrument or a national hammer dulcimer champion, or even a person who just likes to listen to the music, you will feel welcome at FunFest. It draws musicians from around the world who come to enjoy several days of concerts, workshops and memories. The festival's original purpose was to invite musicians who played other acoustic instruments, to add variety to the sound of the large collection of hammer dulcimers. And thus even today, all acoustic instrument players are welcomed to this predominantly hammer dulcimer event.
