Reluctantly, again, we have had to increase the fees for the 2016 festival due to the low Canadian dollar and the fact that we did not receive a city grant. The early-bird fee is now $185. See the list here. If you don’t mind missing a few hours of dancing to work in the festival market, for example, in exchange for 50% reduced fees, we need you! We need approximately 5 such people. Reduced fees are again available for Youth (up to 30 yrs) and Elders (80+).
The Lyrids registration form has been updated for your use again this year. If you need to register the old-fashioned way, you can download and print a registration form. I encourage you to use the online form as it will guide you through the process and not let you make any mistakes!
We had a full hall last year and are hoping for the same this year. Priority will be given to full-time registrations until March 6, 2016. There is some billeting available in the homes of local dancers. Apply on the registration form.
Find all the details at lyridsfolkdancefestival.org. Please be patient as I continue to update the website with all the new information.
