Saw Festival! It’s early this year!

Hi everyone! The annual saw festival in Felton is a couple of weeks early this year. Check out the note below from Kenny Blacklock with specifics. It’s only two weeks away!


Dear Musical Saw Players and Friends,

Our annual street jam will take place on Saturday, July 29, from 1-3 pm at 1520 Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz. However, if the gathering is too large, we may need to move the street jam to the corner of Pacific Avenue and Front Street. Please look for us there if we are not in front of Bookshop Santa Cruz.

Our annual potluck and jam will take place on Saturday, July 29, from 6-9 pm in the outer parking lot of Roaring Camp Railroads in Felton.

The main event will take place on Sunday, July 30th, 10 am – 5 pm at Roaring Camp in Felton, California.

If you are interested in performing at the festival, please contact Art Peterson.

The musical saw contest will take place at 11 am. Click here for more information on the contest.

For more information about the festival, please visit our website or Facebook page.

You can support the festival by joining the International Musical Saw Association. The membership fee is only $5 and can be paid online. Please also consider making a donation of any amount using our donation link.

We look forward to seeing you at the festival!
