Please gather with WOWMAD for 3 days and nights of joyful, locally sourced traditional music and dance from around the world!
Join us in celebrating 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 and Dancers representing with their art and love: Balkan, Middle-Eastern, Brazilian, Roma, Central Asian, African, Norwegian, Greek, and more, in a VERY relaxed setting, with multiple headliners, glorious dancers, and special guests!
We're still building the roster, schedule coming soon!
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, friends, laughter, and plenty of room to dance.

$25+ suggested donation per day
Online ticket sales coming soon.

GROUPS and SCHEDULE: Artists confirmed include Ali Paris, Dan Cantrell, Fanfare Zambaleta, Silk Road Caravan, Kaptain Bottletop, Wind Weavers, and more TBA... Schedule coming soon!
We will again have a co-op kids area with activities, toys, a changing/napping/chilling tent and fun!! Please bring what you can/want to add to the experience(toys, games, cool things, ideas, art activities, things like that).
Hearty, healthy, reasonably-priced food and beverages will be available
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 expect to fill the beautiful park-like yard with jam-spaces under the oaks, a musical-instrument petting-zoo, quality handmade goods and more.
It's going to be brilliant weekend! Check back for more details as we get them, we look forward to celebrating with you!
