Cascadia Irish Music Week 2022

Registration is now closed for Cascadia Irish Music Week 2022. The dates are Sun, Aug 7 - Sat, Aug 13, 2022 at The Evergreen State College (TESC), Olympia, Washington. 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.

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. The range and microwave in these units are working this year, and there is a refrigerator in each kitchen area.

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 recreation center, and 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. If you don't choose the full meal plan, you can purchase individual meals in the Greenery depending on availability.

Class assignments can be changed by email request as long as there are still openings in desired classes. Most classes will be limited to 25 students, filled in order of registration received, in order to keep class sizes down.


  • Due to the uncertainty created by the Covid-19 pandemic, we are making our cancellation and refund policy more flexible.

  • No refunds will be issued except in cases of medical or family emergency.

  • However, if at any time we cancel the event, we will reimburse you in full, including deposit.

A $5/day/M-F parking fee is NOT included in the above packages. Daily and weekly parking permits can be purchased directly at the College.

We cannot accommodate "partial week" registrations . . . thanks for your understanding!

COVID-19 Vaccination Attestation

In compliance with The Evergreen State College’s Covid-19 policies, we are required to confirm that all attendees are fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to arrival on campus and will comply with the TESC Covid-19 guidelines.

To that end we need registrants to complete the attestation form, including the name and email you used to register at CIMW2022, by July 22.

If you can’t confirm that you’re fully vaccinated or unwilling to comply with the TESC Covid-19 guidelines, you may not attend Cascadia Irish Music Week. In that case we will refund any payments you’ve made.

We appreciate your cooperation in making this a healthy and safe event for all.
