Announcing JAGFEST 2024

Can you believe it?!? 25 years ago, aspiring hobby developer Carl Forhan launched Songbird Productions and hosted an event called JagFest in June 1999. The fan-led event has appeared off and on over the years, even in Europe as e-JagFest, but that was the only event hosted by Songbird… until NOW.

Songbird is pleased to announce that JagFest 2024 is coming to Rochester, MN, on June 28-29, for a 25th anniversary celebration. Tickets go on sale later this month on the Songbird website. Here are some quick details for you.
