Kenney Grove campouts are currently unofficial Songmaker events officially considered DARK because there is no way to control who chooses to be in our spaces / song circles in any public place. Kenney Grove is a public campground where anyone is free to camp and there are no county rules that say someone must be vaccinated to camp there.
In normal times, Songmakers enjoy weekend campouts, retreats and other special events that provide extended opportunities to share music and socialize in beautiful natural settings. Some are official Songmaker events and others we just participate in. Examples are Songmakers Corner at the Annual Topanga Banjo and Fiddle Contest, Kenney Grove Campouts in Fillmore, annual summer club picnics, annual “Roundup” membership meeting and concert showcase, etc. Events will be posted below as the dates are determined.
Thu Mar 23 – Sun Mar 26

Thu June 1 – Sun June 4
