Special Events

Join world renowned musician Fareed Haque for a 2 day intensive adult music camp. All instruments are welcome but space is limited. Discover Fareed here!

These events help to benefit the Manzanita Music Festival whose mission is to fund music education in our community (North Oregon Coast) and to help heal and build community in our region. This area has one of the worst drug addiction problems in the state of Oregon. By helping kids get involved in music programming we hope to help the next generation avoid this scourge on our community. This year’s proceeds will fund scholarships for kids wanted to play music but cannot afford to participate.

Music camp, Monday, Tuesday September 17 and 18.

Camp tuition $750 includes:
-3 nights lodging (16,17,18) in the magical beach community of Manzanita, OR. Check in on the 16th at 4pm
