Online registration closes on Friday, July 13th for the August 3rd-6th Pipers' Gathering at Champlain College in Burlington, VT. After July 13th, registration will be at the event.

Here’s a sampling of workshops that will be presented at the event:

Please visit our website at for more information about this year’s instructors and vendors, schedule, and workshop topics.

If you are planning to stay and take meals at Champlain College, we urge you to register before July 13th. We need to provide the College with final lodging and meal numbers several weeks in advance of the event, and while we're planning for some extra capacity, we cannot guarantee lodging and meal availability for walk-in registrants.

To register online, please go to:


This year we are basing our t-shirt production run on pre-order numbers, and we'll have a very limited selection on hand at the event. So if you are interested in a t-shirt, please pre-order with your registration no later than July 13th.


Private lessons are still available with many of our instructors. The complete list can be found on our registration form.

That's it for the July update. We look forward to seeing you in Burlington in just a few weeks!
