Join us for a full day of workshops, dance, music, and Klezmer mayhem, led by the boisterous and elegiac klezmer band Mamaliga! We are pleased to offer a variety of workshops in Klezmer music and Klezmer dance, led by Mamaliga, and members of Boston-based Levyosn, as well as local favorites Sruli and Lisa, and the Casco Bay Tummlers. We are also thrilled to offer Yiddish singing workshops led by Jeyn Levison & Josh Waletzky, Lisa Mayer, and Lysander Jaffe & Kaia Berman Peters.

Come take part in this welcoming and intergenerational festival, with participants of all different skills, histories, and relationships to Klezmer music, as we gather to dance, sing, play, eat, learn, celebrate Shabbat, and build community!

We can provide transportation from Portland to the camp and back on the day of the festival. Contact us at if you need a ride!
