Visitors to Oklahoma City have the opportunity to experience the American Banjo Museum’s Americana Fest June 18th. The American Banjo Museum is located in the historic Bricktown district of downtown OKC. The whole family will enjoy great music, good food and the opportunity to win prizes.
“This is the first event of this type that we’ve ever done and the first family oriented musical event in Bricktown in quite some time,” said Johnny Baier, executive director of the American Banjo Museum. “We’ve put together a wonderful line-up of live music and family-friendly activities and are really excited to invite everyone to join us for a great time.”
Music will be provided on multiple stages by local favorites including Willow Way and Bread & Butter Band along with Memphis’ own Side Street Steppers. Also scheduled to appear is KFOR-TV’s Lucas Ross who will be performing for the kids on a special outdoor stage.
There will be crafts and “hands on” musical activities for the kids, summertime treats for everyone and amazing door prizes - including the grand prize of a Deering Goodtime Banjo.
Tickets, which include all shows and food - are just $10 for adults, children 15 and under are free with a paid adult.
The American Banjo Museum is a world-class facility honoring the rich history, vibrant spirit and unlimited future of the banjo. The museum’s collection contains more than 400 instruments, recordings, film, video, printed music, instructional materials, ephemera and memorabilia associated with the banjo. The museum contains the largest collection in the world of banjos on public display. Much of the museum’s core collection is ornately decorated banjos made in American during the Jazz Age of the 1920s and 30s.
