Every summer for the past 10 years the studio has hosted an outdoor music party. A family event, it opens the stage to a number of artists and groups from as far away as Portland. Music goes from noon on saturday until the wee hours. Many friends, family, neighbors and friends of friends come to enjoy the gardens and home, good music, good food, sunshine, beer, wine and socializing. Kids head for the swimming hole, or hike about the place and play with the animals. Many folks set up tents and stay the night.
