Musical Story Hour 

A Moab Music Festival and Grand County Public Library Collaboration

The Moab Music Festival and Grand County Public Library invite you and your little ones to explore the vibrant and diverse world of music through their collaborative "Musical Story Hour" quarterly events! These family-friendly events are intended to introduce young children (ages newborn to early elementary), with their parents, to a wide variety of musical instruments, songs, sounds, and genres through live musical demonstrations, story telling, and instrument-themed crafts.
