Join us in celebrating this awesome planet, the gift of life, and the rich diversity of West Coast traditional arts communities. Bask in music and dance with a golden weekend of convivencia at this warm and pleasant venue with a huge open oak-shaded yard.
Musicians, Dancers, and Artists representing with their art and love: Balkan, Middle-Eastern, Latin, Americana, Roma, Hawai'ian, Greek, and more. Traditional music and dance in a VERY relaxed setting, with multiple headliners, glorious dancers, and special guests!
This event is 100% family-friendly, and aims to create the feel of mid-week at music camp, with carpets and pillows for lounging, great food, freinds, laughter, and plenty of room to dance.
Friday April 14 - Doors 3pm, Music 6 - 9pm
Saturday April 15 - Doors at Noon, Music 1 - 10pm. Informal music and fun after into the night.
Sunday April 16 - Doors Noon, Music 1 - 9pm.
$20-$100 suggested donation
no one turned away for lack of funds.
This is a grassroots festival and all proceeds after expenses will go to the artists. Since it looks like the weather will be fine, we will fill the beautiful park-like yard with jam-spaces under the oaks, a musical-instrument petting-zoo, and perhaps a few sellers of quality handmade goods by the massive outdoor fire hearth: and honest food and beverages will be available by donation from Waggie's Coffeehouse
