Bones Fest XIX will take place in Shepherdstown, WV on August 6-9, 2015. Shepherdstown is a charming college town located on the Potomac river just 90 minutes from Baltimore, Washington and 3 international airports. There are plenty of wonderful shops and restaurants in Shepherdstown’s easily walkable downtown area. As West Virginia’s oldest town it is steeped in history and surrounded by fantastic historic sites such as Antietam Battlefield and Harpers Ferry National Historic Park. This gorgeous country is exactly what John Denver was describing when he wrote “almost heaven, West Virginia” and there is no shortage of outdoor activities in the area. Join us for our Party on the Potomac!
The fest hotel is the Clarion. clarionshepherdstown.com/ How to book: Call (304) 876-7000 and ask for the Rhythm Bones Society's Bonesfest rate. Cost: $94 + tax
Most of the fest will take place at the Shepherd University Student Center. We have the Storer Ballroom which should be more than ample for our needs as well as one other meeting room so that we can do some breakout sessions. We have space in the student center from 9am to 10pm on Friday and from 9am to 6pm on Saturday. shepherd.edu/scccweb/
The public performance on Saturday night will be held in the Shepherdstown Opera House - operahouselive.com/. Check out the ad for our concert on their website. They are happy to promote our event and have their own set of followers so maybe we'll be able to pull some extra exposure that way.
