Advance Registration Now Open
$129 through July 31

Register in advance for the Sundance Stompede. One low fee will admit you to all events* through the weekend – only $129 if you register by July 31. (*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! 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.
