CBA Youth Program

Kids Love Bluegrass


The California Bluegrass Association (CBA) supports a number of events for our bluegrass kids and plenty of opportunities for volunteers, including some opportunities for teens that would like to volunteer!

Kids on Bluegrass

The CBA is well known and acknowledged for our Kids on Bluegrass (KOB) programs. KOB has been emulated by festivals around the world including the International Bluegrass Music Association’s (IBMA) annual event, the World of Bluegrass.


KidFest, a recreational program for children, is held during the CBA Father’s Day Bluegrass Festival each June in Grass Valley.

CBA Youth Academy

The CBA Youth Academy is a 4-day instructional day camp for youth, ages 8-16.
