UPDATES & NEWS
WELCOME TO THE BUCKEYE DULCIMER FESTIVAL WEBSITE!
The Buckeye Dulcimer Festival in March is HISTORY!
Thanks to David Hudler from Recreation Unlimited, we were able to move the festival to the last of April.
For 2020, the dates are April 22 - 26.
Here at Recreation Unlimited just north of Columbus, Ohio, we have a much better chance now of eliminating most of the winter weather issues. The festival will now take place the end of April.
The timeframe will eliminate issues with winter, will not conflict with Easter. We've had it all. This picture to the right tells a lot of the story.
The Buckeye Dulcimer
Festival moves to April!
We are just beginning to truly feel the impact of this move. We can focus on 'springtime' at RU with its wonderful outdoor attractions including the wonderful walking and hiking 'back at the pond.'
In the coming months, this website will be going through a ton of updating as we set our sights to April of 2020.
Up close and personal are the three folks responsible for a smooth running festival with a lot of fun added in for good measure. And ... for the background in this picture ... people visiting, laughing, and a little studying.

FYI: BASIC QUESTIONS and UPDATES
-- BDF Menu for 2019 has been uploaded on the Miscellaneous page.
-- Saturday beginner sessions for Mountain, Hammer, and Autoharp are filling nicely.
-- Do you have electrical outlets in the sleeping cabins or Greif House 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 (937-216-2002) 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 Residence Halls/sleeping cabins or staff housing.
-- Do I have to sleep on an upper bunk in the Residence Halls or Greif House? 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.
THERE WILL BE FRESH ADDITIONS and CHANGES to 2020.
