The Old Songs music festival is coming to the Altamont Fairgrounds! (And hopefully that's where the Altamont '69 parallels end.) In all seriousness, this is a three day music festival of folk, traditional, Celtic and world music and dance, that sets itself apart from other festivals with its relaxed, family friendly, atmosphere.

With music from Appalachia, Ireland, Quebec, Brazil, the Netherlands, and more, this festival features three mainstage concerts, 120 interactive workshops, a craft show, and instrument vendors. And if you’re looking to trade your jaw harp for a bodhran, its instrument exchange is just for you.

The festival runs from June 27 to June 29. Single day admission tickets can be purchased, so even if it's too late to commit to the full festival experience, you still don't have to miss this chance to introduce your kids to the one-of-a-kind experience of live music.
