The LaFayette Hotel

Clay and Samantha Hess are proud to present:

The 3rd Annual Ohio Bluegrass Winter Weekend!
 

The OBWW is a Bluegrass Festival and Band Contest taking place on March 8 - 9th, 2019.

Starting in 2017 as the Burr Oak Bluegrass Weekend, the OBWW has quickly outgrown the state park lodge we were holding it in. Beginning in 2019, the historic Lafayette Hotel in downtown Marietta, Ohio will be the new home for the festival.

Not only will bands will be playing shows each night of the festival, we will be hosting a band contest, bluegrass karaoke, and instrument workshops. After the shows come to a close, the music doesn’t have to stop - bring your instruments, jam all night and make new friends and great memories. Bring your family! Kids 12 and under are free.

Saturday morning there will be workshops for banjo, mandolin, guitar, and bass for anyone wanting to learn how to play an instrument or add to what they already know. (free with admission, $20 if doing the workshop only)
