For many years, SERFA has held its annual conference at the beautiful Montreat Conference Center in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. The conference spans several days in May, and brings together artists, songwriters, presenters, DJs, and other music industry professionals. Days are filled with informational seminars and workshops, and the evenings are music-filled, with featured performers ("official showcases") followed by late-night shows in intimate settings ("guerrilla showcases"). 

Online registration closes May 9. We're looking forward to seeing you!
