FAR-West is excited to announce the 18th Annual FAR-West conference will take place October 14-16 and will be entirely virtual, allowing us to reach more people in our community. FAR-West encompasses CA, HI, OR, WA, UT, ID, NV, WY, MT, AK, and the Canadian provinces of Alberta, BC, the Yukon, and Northwest Territories – it’s a lot of ground and people to cover and we don’t want anyone to miss out! 

This year’s theme, #forwardwithfolk, embraces our movement forward in adapting to a changing world while still showcasing past conference traditions such as the Venue’s Choice Concert, FAR-WestTeaches (Panels), Guerrilla Showcases, and awards for the Best of The West, while introducing new additions such as Campfires, Community Spotlights, Peer Sessions, and a Special Humanitarian Award. Registration opens Monday, August 2nd. We hope you can join us!

FAR-West has six ticket registration options for this year’s virtual event, ranging from general fan to VIP. You can review the various ticket options below or via our registration page (where you can also purchase your ticket).  For those interested in helping to sponsor this event, please see our Sponsorship Page!

Though we’re still adding more events to the schedule, you can get a sneak peek at some of what’s already planned here. If you have any questions about the conference, please contact our Conference Director, Julie Zipperer, at farwestpublicity@gmail.com.
