Terry & Carol, you can certainly give it a try. The festival begins on the Friday night right before we get there, and Friday & Saturday nights during the festival generally fill up a year in advance. That's why we book Sunday through Thursday nights -- those are the ones that are available. You might luck into a cancellation. We tried with no luck to book the weekends immediately before and after.

See you there!
