Here we go!

As you can see, we've got the countdown clock ticking down the days, hours, minutes and seconds until the First Annual Key West Dulcimer Fest, just a little over a year away! We're all pretty excited because this will be the first ever tropical dulcimer festival and lots of folks will not only have a great time in one of the most beautiful places on earth, but many will also get a chance to visit the island of Key West for the first time.

Even better still, we've got 15 top-notch instructors on staff who will make this an unforgettable extended weekend of music, fun and fellowship!

Pre-registration has begun, which is basically just a way of reserving your place in line since we're only offering 150 registrations. Folks have been busy e-mailing for the past couple of months and those slots are filling up, so don't miss out!

In the meantime, we've added a few things to the site, so have fun looking around and whetting your appetite for the adventure that'll be here sooner than you realize! We're talking with various island businesses and merchants to secure discounts and special bargains for festival-goers and their families. We're also in the process of finalizing arrangements with the venues for our festival - so we'll have that information soon, and then registration will begin. Be sure to read the previous blog, It's Official!, for some of what you can expect in the southernmost point in the continental United States!

Not only can you find information right here on this site, but the Key West Dulcimer Fest is also on Twitter! If you haven't used Twitter yet, it's a wonderful way of keeping connected with other folks. It's easy to start an account and you can Twitter from your computer or your cel phone. Twitter will be a key (pun intended) element to some of the fun we plan to have in Key West. From staying connected and informed to scavenger hunts and games throughout the year!
