Are you ready to register for Zimfest!? Go to the website to Meet the Zimbabweans, meet the Workshop Teachers, browse all 79 workshops on the Workshop Schedule, learn How to Register, and much more.
Registration is due to open late Sunday night at midnight (when the date turns May 1st, Pacific Time) for ZA members, and on May 4th for everyone. Why not join, renew, verify your membership, or get your membership number.
A team of dedicated volunteers, the Zimfest Organizing Committee has been working very hard for the past few months preparing an amazing festival, August 3-6 at Oregon State University in Corvallis.
The Roommate Request Board is a new feature on the website this year (similar to the ride board). Because most dorm rooms are doubles and triples, you may want to find a roommate, to save money on housing.
You can always get the latest news by going to the Zimfest Home Page (in the white box in the middle).

Thanks! I’m looking forward to taking some singing classes.
Is there any possibility that these could be held outside, or moved outside for better air circulation?
Sorry for the delay in answering, Marilyn. The singing and choral classes are scheduled to be held in a large choral room with risers, and we are bringing in a writing board as many of the teachers have requested one. I’m sure you are aware that this year’s Covid Safety policy states that we expect all Zimfest participants to mask while indoors, and that teachers may require it of their students. I am checking to see whether there is an accessible space outside the Music Bldg. should singing teachers and students choose to go outside for their class. FYI, hosho classes will take place outside on the McNary Hall lawn, and mbira workshops are located in buildings where classes may easily go outside if they wish.
