Lone Star State Dulcimer Society

Glen Rose 2016

The Lone Star State Dulcimer Festival, AKA "Glen Rose", because it is held every year in Glen Rose, Texas at Oakdale Park, will be held on May 6-8 this year.

This year's Lone Star State Dulcimer Festival features Princess Harris, and Joe Collins, as well as many local and nearby favorites. And don't forget about the Texas State Hammered Dulcimer and Mountain Dulcimer Championships. Here are the contest rules.

Photo of Glen Rose Quilt As you may know, a large part of the festival is paid for by the proceeds of the raffle tickets. Well, have a look at one of the prizes that can be had from the raffle. This is a 90x90 Lone Star Festival Quilt which has been created by Pat Harkins and Sharon Boucher for the 2016 Lone Star State Dulcimer Festival at Glen Rose, TX, commemorating our 35th anniversary. Raffle tickets for the quilt will be available at the festival.

This is a free festival, but do bring money to pay for camping and buy food, T-shirts, and raffle tickets.

Here is the flyer.

Here is the current concert and workshop schedule.

Special Note from Dana

If you are planning to go to the dulcimer festival in Glen Rose this year try to make reservations soon by calling (254)897-2321. They said they have a few sites left with hookups and several tent sites. Our friend Kelly is not with the park anymore and the new folks aren't too hip on how we do things. I have been told that some folks have been turned away because the park is full. If it does fill up you can request "dry camping" (camping without any hookups) and they will honor that. I was stonewalled on the tent sites and I'm not sure what the new manager's plans are for that. If ANYONE has trouble getting a reservation for tenting or dry camping please let me know at (817) 275-3872. If you get to the festival and they won't let you camp contact me when you get there and I'll find a way to get you in. I'm really getting tired of dealing with this year after year. (Ahhh, for "good ol' days...)

Your friend and mine, Dana
