Workshop and Jam Camp Schedule

Workshop Stage 

Each year the Ogden Music Festival provides exciting opportunities for experienced as well as aspiring musicians to learn from our performers at the Trader Bowery.

Workshops, a tradition since the first OFOAM Festival, provide an intimate environment to get a closer look at the main-stage performers, their instruments and techniques.  Learn from the unique collaborations of festival artists about band dynamics for all ages, instrument playing, songwriting, vocals or just see and hear more of your favorite band.

Bring your instruments to the Jam Camp by the Visitor's Center and jam with your favorite mainstage artists for 30 minutes or jam with your fellow festivarians anytime! The camp has a relaxed atmosphere. Grab a snack, drink and kick back to play some tunes. The space welcomes everybody and the only expectations are to be inclusive and have fun. Main Stage artists are our special guests!
