OKLAHOMA CITY -- If you haven’t been down to the American Banjo Museum yet, it is a surprisingly good time. Educational enough to take a family trip, or has plenty of badass banjo related stories for an adult only trip. This year, the American Banjo Museum is ringing in its Hall Of Fame Inductees with a stellar lineup of events you are sure not going to want to miss!

It all starts with a welcome reception and BBQ at the museum Thursday, September 8th from 6-10pm. On Friday, they are taking the celebration up class to a formal ceremony at VAST, a restaurant located at the very top of the Devon Tower.

On Saturday the 10th, Banjo Fest goes down at the Hudiburg Chevrolet Performing Arts Theater at Rose State College in Midwest City. To wrap up the three-day event, American Banjo Museum will host a post-concert Afterglow Party.

Overall, the American Banjo Museum knows how to party, and you are not going to want to miss out on joining them! Red Dirt Report looks forward to seeing you there!
