Register now for the 2023 Folklife in the South Gathering. FITS takes place June 8-10, 2023, at Lake Guntersville State Park in Guntersville, Alabama. FITS is a regional gathering that brings together community leaders, folklorists, traditional artists, educators, documentarians, activists, students, and other cultural workers from across the Southeast to learn from one another, celebrate traditional arts, discuss issues relevant to our region, and forge partnerships across disciplines, states, generations, and communities. This year’s theme, “Folklife in a Textured World,” evokes the role of folklore and traditional arts in the complexity of contemporary life in the South.
Due to high demand, as of May 1, 2023, registrations that include on-site lodging are no longer available. Although on-site lodging is no longer available, there are off-site options in the Lake Guntersville area such as Wyndham Garden Lake Guntersville, Hampton Inn Guntersville, VRBO, and Airbnb; there are also private and public campground options in the area. South Arts has no affiliation with these options and cannot guarantee availability; lodging reservations are responsibility of the attendee.”
