Annual Meeting


At our annual meeting, held each year the weekend after Easter, members present papers on a wide variety of folklore subjects. On Friday they enjoy a tour of an attraction that highlights the lore of the local region, and that night there is a hootenanny; on Saturday there are paper session throughout the day, with a banquet in the evening, usually including musical entertainment. All sessions are open to the public.

The Society's Vice-President/Program Chair solicits and selects papers to be presented at the meeting. Members may submit proposals for papers they wish to present. Learn how you can submit a paper for a meeting at the link below.
