Our spirit looks and hopes on!

We missed all of you at SAFDF 2020! Unfortunately, COVID-19 took that away. But it will not ever take away our spirit. We always look ahead to a bright future where we can again share dancing, music, costumes, and camaraderie.

Right now, our biggest goal is to ensure that all of you stay healthy and safe. So we’re not planning any in-person events until the COVID-19 pandemic subsides. However, we are planning many exciting online festival events — year-round! Please continue to watch this site and your e-mail for announcements about these events.

And if you’re new to SAFDF … this site will show you the beauty of festivals past, and what we can all look forward to after we can be socially close again!
