Cascadia Irish Music Week 2024 

Registration is now open for Cascadia Irish Music Week 2024.  The dates are Sun, July 28 - Sat, Aug 3, 2024 at The Evergreen State College (TESC), Olympia, Washington.  Please read through the information on this page before submitting your registration. If you have questions not answered here, please email us.

Please note: Tuition, lodging and meals must be booked through us on this website, not through the college.

Please note: Video recording is NOT allowed in any classes. Audio recording allowed if the teacher permits it. Video recording of concerts and sessions is OK but please be discreet.

Lodgings - Our lodgings for the week are in Evergreen's lovely apartment buildings.  Each building has three floors, and on each floor are several private rooms with locking doors, plus a shared kitchen area and bathrooms.  There is a refrigerator in each kitchen area, and we've been informed that the microwaves and cooking ranges will be working this year

Couples: The Evergreen State College charges us by the person, rather than by the room, and each room has only a single bed. Let us know on the application form if you want to room near someone and we will aim to assign you rooms as close as possible.

These structures are tucked back in the woods and are very pleasant.  You can read more about these lodgings and even take a panoramic tour of the rooms on the TESC website.  If you're staying on-campus you'll also have access to the lovely woods, trails and beaches adjoining the campus.

Meals - All meals are served in the dining Hall at TESC, "The Greenery".  They can accommodate vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dietary needs.  There is also an espresso shop on campus (not included in our meal plan) . . . two of them, in fact, although we don't know for sure if one of them will be open. If you don't choose the full meal plan, you can purchase individual meals in the Greenery depending on availability.
