The Central Ohio Folk Festival yard sale is this coming Saturday 18 July. Not only can you find bargains, but there will be a jam session as well. If you want to participate just turn up with an instrument and some money, you never know you may find the bargain of a lifetime.

Once again Chas has opened her house to the event and a big thank you goes to her.

The event is from 9:00 - 5:00. at

in Clintonville about 6 blocks north of Henderson Rd. and about 6 blocks south of Morse Rd., west of High Street.

It is still not to late for items for sale. Try to get them there on Friday evening.

This is a fund raiser for the Festival so we need to turn out in force.

There will also be several stages where you can hear some GREAT storytelling, including a performance by some strange English/Welsh-American (how did HE ever get in an IRISH festival???)

He got there because of talent, stunning good looks, professionalism, great personality, dress sense, grey hair, beer belly and he is a good brown noser.
