On-Site Registration Details:

We welcome additional conference attendees to come to the conference and register on-site. Registration will be open from 8-9 a.m. and again during the lunch break each day. The cost is $60, or $45 for students. A few print program books will be available for purchase ($8) for those who did not pre-register.

Pre-Registration Details:

**PRE-REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED*** The following information is provided only as a reference for those who pre-registered.

All participants, including presenters, must register for the conference. Please note that online registration will close on March 19, 2017. The regular registration rate is $45, and the student/low-income rate is $30. We strongly encourage you to pre-register now, as on-site registration fees will be substantially higher ($60 regular, $45 student).

When you register, you will also have the option to purchase a print copy of the program book for $5, which you will receive when you check in at the conference. If you want a print copy, please do purchase now, as these may not be available for purchase on-site. If you do not wish to purchase a program book, an online PDF will be available for free to all attendees.

Although registration is being handled through the American Folklore Society’s registration system, please contact us directly at with any questions, rather than the AFS staff.
