Come enjoy Banjo Rally International in beautiful Eureka Springs Arkansas, August 29st through September 1st, 2012. This rally has been held annually in Eureka Springs since 1975.

Billed as a “world class celebration of Razzle-Dazzle Jazz Banjos,” the Eureka Springs Banjo Rally will include Ragtime, Dixieland, Tin Pan Alley, Broadway tunes and old standards musical styles.
There will be performance opportunities for players at local venues, institutions and other facilities; evening shows at the Best Western Convention Center and “jam sessions” at all hours of the day and night. A vendor room offering opportunity to see and acquire quality instruments, instrument accessories, sheet music, instruction materials and access instrument maintenance services and advice from experienced luthiers and players. Public evening shows are held on Friday and Saturday nights with quality performers and very reasonable admission prices. The public shows begin at 7:00 pm and last until they are over. After the evening shows, “jam sessions” usually breakout in every nook and cranny of the convention center and evening show attendees are welcome to linger and enjoy these sessions too.
