Swannanoa Gathering 2024

Founded in 1991, we are Warren Wilson College’s educational program of summer folk arts workshops held on our campus in the Swannanoa Valley near Asheville in the heart of North Carolina’s beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

Each year, we offer a variety of week-long programs in various forms of folk music and dance over a five-week period in July and August, taught by some of the finest folk artists and instructors in the world.

We invite you to join us.

All seven week-long themed programs take place on the campus of Warren Wilson College. The teaching programs and performances are joyous celebrations of diverse embodiments of music and dance and the many musical forms they have inspired. Check website for programs, location, dates and time.
