Basic Schedule for the 2023 Nutmeg Dulcimer Festival.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN NOW!

Here's the basic layout.

 

We have 3 tracks of hammered dulcimer (Beginner, Mid-level, and Advanced) ... 4 tracks of mountain dulcimer (Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced) ... and a track of "other" workshops, which cover a wide range of topics. In every period, there's always a workshop suitable for every level of dulcimer player. But if you'd rather go off and jam with somebody, that's fine, too!

Food, clothing, and shelter: For meals, if you wish to stay "on campus," we bring in takeout orders that you can buy into. For clothing, well, Nutmeg has some of the best dulcimer festival T-shirts we've ever seen. And if you're traveling from out of the area, there's a special Nutmeg rate at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites, in Milford, about two miles away.
