NEFFA 2023 Grid is Out!

NEFFA is back, and what a lineup! We have over 325 events in five dance halls and six folk music and song venues. Dance the day and night away with contras and squares, couple and social dance, and international dances from all over the world. 

Raise the rafters of the new outdoor tent with chorus songs and singalongs for as many as will. Grab your instruments, or learn a new one, and get your jam on with sessions and workshops from beginner slow jams to hot licks and tricks on a wealth of folk instruments. 

Waltz, waltz, and more waltzing in two big ballrooms, the NEFFA dance floor in the Trade Center, and two smaller halls for those intimate waltzes. Feel your heart leap into spring at the crack of sticks, the jingle of bells, and the clash of swords as the morris and sword dancers wake up the earth.

Check out the schedule grid at You can browse the web grid with day by day views, print out a day list or an event catalog, drill down by performer or category, or export the data into your own spreadsheet to organize as you will.
