North Carolina's Longest-Running Dulcimer Festival - Now in its 26th year!

Other Important Info

Please read!

For lunch, we will offer a very simple “box lunch” that will be provided by a caterer.  We will have an assortment of various sandwiches, including some with vegetarian option.   However we are not taking “specific orders” so it will be first-come, first-pick on the selections (you *will* be guaranteed a lunch if you register in time; see the registration page for more details).   Please note that this optional box lunch is the only thing that is not included in your general registration fee; the lunch is an additional $10.


Of course you are more than welcome to bring your own lunch; there will be single beverages available, at a reasonable “a la carte” cost.   (If you have special dietary needs, you might consider doing this; that way you can be sure that you will have something that meets your needs.)  


Another option is to go “off-campus” for lunch; this will actually be pretty easy to do, since there are a number of “fast food” choices (as well as other choices - deli/cafe/restaurant) within 5 minutes of the festival.  And you will have an hour and a half allotted for this time.


However, if you stay at the festival and dine with us, you will be treated to a short concert by participants in our “open mic” opportunity.  You never know just what you’ll hear in that!


After the last class of the day, we’ll have a short break, then gather for a concert by our instructors.  This concert (no extra charge; it’s included in your registration) should last between an hour to 90 minutes, so we hope to get everyone out and back on the road home by 6:30 or so.


All of our instructors will have vending tables, where they will be displaying and selling their latest CD’s, music books, etc.  So bring that checkbook along!   


Also...  just as we did last year, we will have available a "swap table" that is open for all participants in the festival.  Individuals may place "for sale" items (dulcimers, books, picks, etc) on the table; however, keep in mind that the WSDF is not "responsible" for any items you put there.  Be sure to place a small sign with your item that clearly states the item description, the sale price, and how to contact you; it will be up to you (not the festival) to complete the transaction.
