I am trying to find a fun festival or summer camp in Idaho or Utah for me and my ukulele (taking grandkids too) during June/July. Anybody have any suggestions?

there's really no uke specific stuff that goes on here. bluegrass is huge in this neck of the woods, so everyone assumes i've got a 'little mandolin', or 'lil' fiddle' in that case of mine. i've got a few folks i play with from time to time, but nothing official. if you make it up this way, hit me up and me and the wife will show you some western hospitality, strum a tune or two. plenty of space for camping too. good luck. jc
