NERFA has been buzzing with activity in 2014. We have just completed a very successful One-Day Mini-Conference in Chatham, NJ. We wish to thank all the wonderful volunteers from the Folk Project and The Sanctuary Concerts whose contributions helped make this day a most worthwhile experience.
Another innovative One-Day event coming up this year - SERFA (Southeast Regional Folk Alliance) and NERFA will be co-sponsoring a joint One-Day Mini-Conference on Saturday September 6th in Charlottesville, VA. Stayed tuned for more details.
Mark your calendar – November 13, 14, 15, 16, 2014 – NERFA’s 20th Anniversary Conference. More information coming soon on how we will be acknowledging this milestone.

Formal Showcase: The juried Formal Showcase is the premier and most coveted showcase performance time slot at the NERFA conference. Only 14 performance slots are available - 7 on Friday and 7 on Saturday. Each performance slot is 15 minutes. One big advantage of winning a Formal Showcase performance slot is NOTHING else is allowed to go on during the Formal Showcase.
Quad Showcase: Immediately following the Formal Showcase on Friday and Saturday evening from 9:45 PM to 11:30 PM are the Quad Showcases. These four concurrently running showcases present our judge's selections and are held in equally sized rooms. Each performance slot is 15 minutes long. A total of 20 performance slots are available each night. Like the Formal Showcase, nothing else is allowed to go on while the Quad Showcases are in operation.
