Guitarfest Guitar Show

 Guitarfest came back to the Summit County Fairgrounds at 229 E. Howe Road Tallmadge, Ohio 44278 (Akron/Tallmage Ohio)  on Sunday, October 14th. The fall 2018 show was brought to  you by The Guitar Department on Kenmore Blvd in Akron and Sperzel Tuners!  Buy, sell,  trade guitar/bass instruments, amps, pedals, and accessories. It's all here.  New, used, vintage. We have you covered. Over 100 individual sellers,  dealers, retailers, collectors, and manufacturers were there. We also had a beer truck and food truck at the show. We encourage attendees to bring that old guitar, amp, or pedal to sell or trade. Will you be at our spring show? 

Guitarfest Guitar Clinics

The pros will were there to share and answer questions. Special technique and gear clinics took place on the "Clifton Guitarworks" stage all day long. Freddy DeMarco from DeMarco School of Music and the band Dirty Deeds  hosted a guitar clinic and Gregory O'Brien from Go Pedal boards  discussed proper pedal board setup and ideas for proper pedal placement.
