Sunday March 1st
Chaffee County is home to many luthiers, and these expert makers of stringed instruments will be on hand to share their knowledge, love, and instruments. Bring a stringed instrument to sell or trade. Custom and vintage; acoustic and electric – all styles of stringed instruments will be represented and welcomed. The Expos is FREE from noon-5pm. Evening performances are sure to leave you itching to go home and pick up your guitar, mandolin, banjo, violin, or whatever you play.
