Welcome to Westwind!

May 5, 6 & 7, 2017

The Salem Folklore Community will host its 31st annual Westwind Weekend Music & Dance Camp May 5, 6, & 7, 2017 at beautiful Camp Westwind on the Oregon Coast.

Come join us for two nights and two days of music, dancing and community in an incomparably beautiful setting on the wild Oregon coast.

Westwind Weekend is an all-volunteer weekend where campers (that’s you) bring their music & dancing talents to create the magic.  Expect two evenings of dance, including family dances, contra, Scandinavian, and swing. Expect a campers’ concert Saturday night, music jams all day and into the night (Irish, old-time, swing and more).  And take plenty of time to walk on the beach, dig in the sand, and hike to the high meadow.

Camp Westwind is located just north of Lincoln City and just south of Cascade Head. The camp is accessed only by boat across the Salmon River.  Timing for the crossings depends of the timing of high tides.  Check the "Updates" section at top right for info on times of arrival and departure from camp.
