The Gathering is kindly being hosted this year by the NAMM-sponsored Museum of Making Music.

We will be here for our Friday Night Oktoberfest (beer & wine included!), all of Saturday's daytime events, and back again on Sunday afternoon for the Recital.

Even better, a week before the Gathering, the Museum will open a brand-new seven-month-long exhibition: "Floating Strings: The Remarkable Story of the Harp Guitar in America."

Gathering attendees will have access to the entire museum including the special exhibit for the whole weekend!


For the Saturday evening concert, we will adjourn to the Carlsbad Community Church, three miles up the freeway.
3175 Harding St, Carlsbad, CA 92008

here should be plenty of seats for all.

Our hotel - the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort & Hotel - is a lovely resort facility just a few hundred feet down the road from the Museum and next door to the Karl Strauss Brewery Restaurant.

We will hold workshops there throughout Sunday morning, and have a fun semi-private common area by our rooms for after hours visiting and jamming.
