A festival usually lasts 5 days, with an opening ceremony on the first evening, 3 days of workshops and a final Closing Ceremony on the last morning. There is also often an option of scheduling one afternoon without workshops that allows attendees to visit local attractions either on their own time or in a separate organized trip.
This year, the middle day of the Festival will be given over to an Intensive workshop with Dr. E.S. Gallegos (Steve).
