Know the Rules Before You Go!

Northwest String Summit is held on private property, Horning’s Hideout.  This magical place is a perfect setting for a music festival, but does have its own set of rules we must abide by.  Here are the rules to Horning’s Hideout.

Respect the Peacock!

That’s right.  There are peacocks.  And while the males are beautiful in their full spectrum of feathered display, they aren’t exactly the friendliest of animals!  Give them their space!
