A crisp fall day in a sylvan setting where the most difficult questions you have to face are: “Do I go to a workshop featuring classic folk songs of the 60’s, pull out a T-shirt and create a tie-dye worthy of the memory of Jerry Garcia, wander over to a cabin for some informal jamming, get out a racket and smack the tennis ball around, or simply collapse in a lounge chair and let the sounds of hundreds of people having fun wash over me?”
Can you also imagine a social gathering of people who come back every year for one special weekend to see old friends and make new ones?
That’s Fall Fling!
Workshops galore – A full schedule of participant-led workshops on Saturday & Sunday. At Fall Fling, you can make all of your workshop dreams come true: you volunteer to lead a workshop, and we put it on the schedule! Workshops can include vocal and instrumental themes and styles, songwriting, performance techniques, dance, tie-dye, yoga & massage, crafts, kid’s activities, sports, etc. Sign up to lead a workshop when you register!
Meals all weekend – We cater to several dietary preferences so you won’t have to worry about it. Just let us know when you register.
Campfire Sings & informal jamming – There is a designated campfire area where formal campfire sings can be arranged. S’mores anyone?
Informal jamming also spontaneously pops up in cabins, dining hall, gazebo(s) or anywhere the acoustics sound good! All are welcome to join in.
RV & tent camping – Itching to get one more weekend outdoors this year? A large field close to all activities provides a great location to pitch a tent or park your RV. Sorry, no hookups available, but we have designated nearby bathroom and shower facilities for those not staying in a dorm.
Heated dormitory accommodations – On-site dorm buildings each include 5 – 7 interconnected separate “cabins” that each sleeps up to 7 people using just the bottom bunks, or 14 including the top bunks (don’t worry, we generally reserve the top bunks for kids and won’t make you climb up there unless you really want to!).
**We only accept up to 135 bed registrations, so sign up early!
**Have some friends or family to share a dorm? Make sure you specify with whom you would like to bunk, and/or who your “cabin organizer” is on your registration form!
**Did we mention that almost all of dorm buildings are heated?
Kid’s Open Stage – Since music is in your family’s blood, this is the opportunity to engage kids (up to age 18) to the thrill of performing in front of an audience in a supportive and non-judgmental environment. Let’s get ’em started early!
Adult’s Open Mic – This is your opportunity to showcase and share your talents in front of an audience with professional audio engineers that work hard to make you sound even better! Sign up when you arrive on Friday (slots will be given on a first come, first served basis).
