The 2019 Banjo Gathering is hosted by Arts@ODU in Norfolk, Virginia.
Come to the 22nd Annual Banjo Gathering, on October 24-27, 2019 for three days of presentations, exhibitions, a concert, and a banjo marketplace for studying, buying, selling, and trading historical and vintage banjos, banjo parts, and related items, as well as banjos from some of today’s finest instrument makers. Since 1998, the Banjo Gathering has been the platform for banjo collectors, researchers, instrument builders, and musicians to share new scholarship and findings about the banjo as a historical, cultural, and design object.
