Thank you for your interest in The Swannanoa Gathering! An in-person Swannanoa Gathering will not be possible in 2021, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. For 2021, we will be offering SGOnline.  Registration will be for SGOnline. SGOnline tuition is $325 per week. This includes up to 3 classes (1 per period) in Old-Time Week and up to 4 classes in the other weeks. We do not have a “per class” fee structure. Each class runs for 5 days (M-F). Click here for a pdf version of our 2021 SGOnline catalog. Classes will be recorded and recordings available to those students registered for the class for 4 weeks from a class session occurring.
