SAN DIEGO'S PREMIER FLUTE ORGANIZATION
Spend the day at our Spring Flute Festival, flute fun for all ages!
Our festival has been attended for decades at various locations throughout San Diego. Each year, we host fabulous guest artists, classes, flute choirs and a variety of competitions to suit all flutists.
Our 2018 festival will be held on Sunday, April 29th, 2018 at Point Loma Nazarene University, and will include vendors, competitions, FUNdraisers, exciting concerts and classes featuring Carol Wincenc - flutist extraordinaire!
It is our desire to serve the SDFG membership and provide the best possible festival for everyone. It can’t be done without our capable board and other volunteers. Please let us know if you are interested in assisting us with the 2018 Spring Festival. We have about 50 jobs to fill, and each volunteer shift is only about an hour or two!
Below are several links to assist you in your registration process. Most registration deadlines are March 25th, 2018, but be sure to check the registration page for exact deadlines. Please be sure that you are an active member before registering to compete. You may check the status of your registration by logging in to this site.
