4 PM Doors Open at the Cotton Building

Everyone gathers for the opening celebration. Music by Alex Dugdale, horns, Josh Potter, percussion and Micaela Kingslight, vocals.

A door volunteer will ask you for your name to check that you are on the reservation list. That volunteer will then hand you your venue passes, which will include a schedule and lineups. You will receive a pass to enter the Cotton Building as well as a pass to enter one other venue. You will select your second venue at the time you make your reservation. The reservation system will show you the lineups for each venue to help you make your choice. You may select the Cotton Building as your “second” venue and remain in the Cotton Building for the entire program.
4:30 PM Storyteller Jefferson Greene of the Warm Springs Reservation tells his story titled “Úwitkni: From the Beginning.”
