Can anyone give me details about the Buckeye Harmonica Festival. Is it worth my time to do the 6 hour drive?

it all depends what you are looking for.it is like a mini SPAH, if you have ever been there. there are many seminars, performances, informal teaching and lots of jam time. if you can split the cost of a room it, naturally, becomes more reasonable.
I have attended Buckeye almost every year since 1999 and I drive 13 hours to get there. I have heard that this year might be the last one, and it's in June instead of the usual April time. Jack Ely was the driving force behind this convention and he's become very sick, so the future of this one is up in the air, i think.
Does Buckeye Harmonica Festival has harmonica contest?
HARPMAN... There are not any contests, but there is a lot of open mic playing, hallway jamming, hotel room jamming, parking lot jamming, and late night blues circle playing.
I'm planning on going... its barely a 3 hour drive for me, and I always have fun... hanging out with other harp players for a few days is always fun... and there's always something to learn or share.
Gonna miss you this year Steve the Spud !!
Thanks,guys. A bunch of harp geeks getting together and jamming? That sounds like my cup of tea! Besides, I miscalculated and it's only a 4 hour drive.
