2021 workshop

 

The workshops at Ossipee Valley are as dynamic as the main stage and hugely diverse. Workshops provide the opportunity for fans to see their favorite performers up close and personal. It is also an opportunity for instruction. Come and listen, or come and play, either way the Ossipee Valley workshop experience is not to be missed! We are still adding workshops for 2021, please check back!
