April 20 -22 is the "official" date for the festival. I have not been in many years but now that I am a mandolin player (ok, for now just a mandolin "practicer") I intend to be there. I understand that there are many satellite activities occurring the week before, in particular, jams and concerts on the square in Mountain View.
Does anyone know the details? Like which day the fun begins, or other details of these "unofficial" activities?
Is anybody from Mandolin Cafe going to be there (I know woodwizard is planning on it!)?
