Tips for the Scottish Rite Center
- Friday and Saturday nights there will be tickets at the door but it’s always a good idea to reserve yours at Brown Paper Tickets.
- Parking is tight in the neighborhood. MAX red and blue lines stop in front of the SRC. MAX yellow stops four blocks east. Buses stop at the SRC. Bike racks will be installed at the front entrance.
- Bring water bottles and coffee mugs to the Scottish Rite Center Friday and Saturday to help save on wasted cups.
Yes, we are asking for volunteers!
All of us performers and organizers volunteer our time at The Gathering, but we need you to make the festival happen. Because The Gathering inspires and energizes our own old-time music and dance community and has influence throughout the Northwest and west coast, you can be sure that your contribution will be felt for years to come. There are benefits to volunteering that include free admission to paid events, and there are a variety of tasks you can help with. To volunteer or for more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in our handy-dandy online form.
