UPDATES & NEWS
WELCOME TO THE BUCKEYE DULCIMER FESTIVAL WEBSITE!

BAD News, but GOOD News!!! SR 229 is still closed, but you can bypass to the north.
As you are coming south, get off at the Waldo exit, head east .... Waldo-Fulton Road takes you allthe way to Route 42. Turn Right and it will take you to Ashley, then turn left onto SR 229 right in the center of town.
As of March 3, SR 229 is closed at the Delaware Dam due to high water. This road closure will affect folks coming from the north and west that travel US 23 and take a left turn to head to RU. We'll keep you updated. If we don't get anymore rain, it could be open by Wednesday, but better look at options.

ANNOUNCING STAFF FOR THE BUCKEYE
DULCIMER FESTIVAL ...
Dates: March 7 - 11, 2018
The 26th annual Buckeye Dulcimer Festival is now History.
It was a wonderful time !!

A festival in Ohio ... in March??? Really? THAT'S RIGHT!
Here at Recreation Unlimited just north of Columbus, Ohio, we never know if we'll have fall, winter, or early spring weather ... sun, rain, ice or snow. We've had it all. This picture to the right tells a lot of the story.
Up close and personal are the three folks responsible for a smooth running festival with a lot of fun added in for good measure.
From left to right: Joyce Harrison (BDF co-director), David Hudler (RU business director and liason), and Shari Wolf (BDF co-director). David gave us a magic wand that we wave occasionally and He Makes It Work!
Now for the background in this picture ... people visiting, laughing, a little studying, and making the weather work.
This begins to tell the "Buckeye Story." This website is packed with information, but don't hesitate to email us with questions.
If you are
new to BDF, send us an email with your mailing address, and we'll get that out
to you asap.
Join our mailing list (email or snail mail): Email us and include your information.
If you have any further questions, please call Shari or Joyce at 937-295-5253 or send us an email.
FYI: BASIC QUESTIONS
-- Do you have electrical outlets in the sleeping cabins for my CPAP machine? YES. Every bed has access. Actually, there are several hospital type beds in each cabin that are plugged in.
-- What is your cancellation policy? Questions on the Buckeye Festival Cancellation Policy. We really don't have one. We believe that everyone that registers, really wants to come. If personal illness, family illness, weather or other reasons get in the way, so be it. We refund money that has been sent for registration as soon as we can. We just need to know as soon as possible by phone or email. Give us a call at 937-295-5253 if you have more specific questions.
-- Is there Wi-fi available onsite? Yes. In the Welcome Center, Life Center, and marginally in the Dining Hall. There is no wif-fi in the sleeping cabins or staff housing.
-- Do I have to sleep on an upper bunk? NO ... no one sleeps on an upper bunk.
-- Do you provide for vegan vegetarians?
-- Can I come to the festival for just
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday?
-- Can I register and not pay for meals?
I will be commuting and don't need to have meals. The same
question because of dietary needs.
2017 T-shirt Design (Posted: 4/21/17)
This design was developed by Dorothy Buchanan who has been
with this festival all 26 years.
We used this design in the early years and thanks to Joyce Harrison and Jill Nichols it's been updated for this year.
We'll continue to use the 'DULCIFLY' as one of our festival logos.
THANKS, DOROTHY... JOYCE, and JILL!!!
