Thanks to all our volunteers and staff, the Stony Fork Creek Campground, our community sponsors, the wonderful musicians and sound crew, our vendors, and especially the audience, for making the 12th Annual Hickory Fest - Music in the Canyon as success! Through the generosity of many involved, we've raised several thousand dollars in support of the Tioga Unit of the American Cancer Society.

We are excited as ever to be hosting the 13th Annual Hickory Fest Š Music in the Canyon to be held August 15-17, 2014. As always, this year’s Hickory Fest will be a fun-filled weekend of great bluegrass and acoustic music and other entertainment.  The stage show will start on Friday afternoon and will continue until Sunday afternoon with campground pickin’ all weekend long.  

We had a great response to our Open Mic last year, and we will be including it again this year.  For those who would like to perform on the Hickory Fest stage, we will be hosting the Open Mic on Sunday August 17.  Please email us to reserve a spot on the Open Mic list!! Stay tuned for details.

As in the past, this year’s festival will benefit our local chapter of the American Cancer Society in order to further research and help our friends and loved ones who have been stricken with this disease.
