Frequently Asked Questions

What is the festival cancellation policy?

A 20% refund charge will be collected for cancellations prior to Feb 29, 2024, and no refunds for later cancellations.  Exceptions include health and family bereavement.

Are day passes available?

Not at this time.  If the Festival sells out we will not be able to accept people for a day.

Why is the Early Bird cut off so early?

There are numerous payments to cover and registration funds are needed especially at the National level.  The Committee also needs a good indication of numbers for their planning of halls and programming.

What type of flooring will we be dancing on?

A solid surface floor on top of carpet will be installed in all dance rooms.

Is the facility air-conditioned?


Is dancing all in the same building?


What is happening during the day on Wednesday?

Registration opens at 4pm.  The Trail-In Dance will start at 7pm. To avoid a line up at the registration desk, come early.

What is the cancellation policy at the Glenmore Inn?

Guests may cancel their reservation up to 4:00 pm on the day of arrival.  Cancellations after this time will result in a one night room and taxes charged against the credit card used for holding the room.

Why aren't there "I am registered" ribbons?

There aren’t going to be “I am registered” ribbons for this Festival because we are trying to keep the costs down.  But please promote the fact that you are registered for the Festival and encourage your dancing friends to attend!
