Gebhard Woods State Park is located in the quaint town of Morris, which is conveniently located 65 miles southwest of the Chicago Loop.

For 25 years, H.A.N.D.S. has strived to provide folks exposure to these history-rich instruments. In recent years, several long-running festivals celebrating the dulcimer have ceased to exist. This festival is not-for-profit and depends on your support in order to survive. For the sake of future festivals and preserving dulcimer music in Illinois.
