Advance Registration Continues
$139 through October 8

Register in advance for the Sundance Stompede. One low fee will admit you to all events* through the weekend – only $139 if you register by October 8. (*There is an additional charge for the Sunday brunch and for premium workshops.)

Consider supporting the Stompede and its beneficiaries by making an additional donation as a host sponsor. Last year one out of three Stompede registrants supported us in this way.

Golden Gateway Holiday Inn

Host Hotel
Golden Gateway Holiday Inn
1500 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco

We're happy to return to the Golden Gateway Holiday Inn, and at $199 per night, it's less expensive than last year by $20 per night, and a real bargain for San Francisco! We love this hotel for its comfort, friendliness, and familiarity.

Hotel reservations are reserved for registrants of the Stompede. You can book your hotel room at the same time you register. All reservations must be made through the Stompede, and not directly with the hotel.

Volunteers Needed

We can't do this without you!

The Sundance Stompede requires an army of volunteers, and we'd love to have your help! Vounteering is FUN and gives you the satisfaction of helping to create this magical weekend.

Most positions require no previous experience or training. Volunteers receive free admission to the event they are volunteering for, or an entire weekend pass with any four or more shifts.
