11th annual New Mexico Dulcimer Festival (online, Oct. 17 – 18)

Pay for only the workshops you wish to take, $15 per workshop.

Our festival has grown from 7 mountain dulcimer workshops in 2010 to 50 workshops in 2019 focusing on mountain and hammered dulcimer, but other folk instruments as well. We offer a full complement of additional activities. We work hard to keep registration fees low which pay for about half of festival expenses – thank you! Registration revenue is critical to festival survival. We’ve been seeking grants since 2013 which have paid for about 17% of expenses. We are grateful for these funds as this little boost makes a huge difference in what we can offer, and we get to promote our sponsors’ worthy efforts. Other minor sources of revenue and private donations have helped us grow the festival into what we hope is a Southwest treasure and a tangible resource in your musical growth and enjoyment.
