The room during the evening dance party was filled with dancers from around the state! Eugene-based Balkan band Kef played music for the four hours of the evening party. It was exhilarating. A highlight of the evening was being part of this large circle of dancers, and enjoying watching friends holding hands, smiling and talking with each other as they danced. There's really nothing like it.
The Veselo Festival 2013 was the impetus for our South Coast Folk Dance Festival. I'm feeling like a 2016 South Coast Folk Dance Festival may be in our future.
