@joseph-besse, you just added a comment to a discussion about how to start a new discussion.  Perhaps you can go to the beginning of the thread to learn how to start a new discussion about any in-person festivals coming up.

I would also point you to the Dulcimer Players News Festival Directory , which lists upcoming events, some of which are virtual, some in-person, and some hybrid.

I don't know if this is the place to start a new discussion, but here goes.  With the country in pretty good shape now, why can't we have more live festivals? I would have liked the one in Kentucky, but I don't play in DAA much.  Surely there must be other live venues in the country. If anyone knows of any other live festivals please let me know.

Let me check out my tablet and my phone so that i can answer your question better, Leny-Sue.  Give me an hour or so to reply, as I need to get my tablet charged up.

Lots of people seem confused about how to create a new forum discussion.  It is easy.

First, within the Forum you want to take part in, click on the "+" button to "create" a new discussion.

Second, choose a descriptive title for your discussion. The title should have enough information that others can tell what the topic is.  Titles such as "Two quick questions" or "friendly advice" are not very informative. Instead, "questions about noter technique" or "how do I use a capo" are much more helpful.  

Third, describe your question or comments in the text box, where you can embed pictures, or link to other sites or other pages on this one, insert smilies, and more.  

Fourth, click "Create New Topic."

Fifth, don't forget to "follow" your own discussion to receive notifications when others reply.
