I’m a beginner, but have pretty much put all of my hobbies aside to learn the 3-string CBG. I haven’t been this enthusiastic about something for years and it feels great! I’d like to attend a festival but: 1. I don’t see many posted yet for 2018 on some of the sites I’ve looked at; and 2. I’m looking for a recommendation on a festival that has a lot of beginner workshops for both playing and building. I’d appreciate any suggestions.

Hi Chuck!  

I think you feel EXACTLY like I do and have even had my wife question my new "obsession".  :-)  Thanks to your question, Gary Herget has already answered the question for me (and I live in St. Louis) and I am not sure I can wait till June.  Ha!    Have you built one yet?  I'm working to finish my 1st build now.

The Republic of Texas CBG Festival is tentatively scheduled for late October this year.

St. Louis CBG Fest, first Sat. in June. We're along way for you, but we have Justin Johnson performing and he does a workshop Sat. morning before the fest. After that you can speak with most any vendor for playing and building tips,
