Acoustic Kids Registration Form – MerleFest

Due to the COVID 19 situation and its impact on large gatherings, MerleFest 2021 will be held September 16-19 rather than the last weekend in April. Unfortunately, we have had to cancel our Acoustic Kids Showcases for this festival:

Update:  We’re very sorry to announce that we have canceled all Acoustic Kids Showcases scheduled for fall, 2021. This was not an easy decision. However, in light of the uncertainty surrounding the current COVID outbreak; out of concern for everyone’s health and well-being (including our own); and following our doctor’s emphatic advice, we see no viable alternative. We will look for you at MerleFest 2022!

Important Notes:

  • Due to the unusual circumstances, and to be fair, those who would have been age-eligible for Acoustic Kids, MerleFest 2020, will be eligible for AK MerleFest 2022: If you were 17 or younger on 4/23/2021, you will be able to register for this fall’s showcases!
  • Participants who had registered for 2020 or 2021 will have a spot in the 2022 showcase.
  • New participants: There will still be plenty of room!
  • Follow us on FaceBook for updates.
