Class opportunities provide diverse learning opportunities: basic ringing techniques, necessary maintenance classes, new theories, handbell related games, Bell Trees and more!
The lift bridge in our 2022 Festival Location (Duluth, MN) inspired our theme. Plans are made and we can’t wait to head north.
Special activities including Bells and Beer Choir on Thursday evening and Dinner Train will provide opportunities for fun and fellowship.
Bill Alexander, Cathy Moklebust and Karen Van Wert are teaming together at the podium to lift ringers to success.
A variety of Learning possibilities will be included in this fabulous event by a diverse group of handbell experts from Area 7 and beyond.

Together we will make amazing music and share it with an audience at the closing concert, Sunday,
