Lodging & Tickets

Tickets will go on sale February 17th. There will be early registration beginning on January 20, 2022 for individuals who held tickets for the original dates in 2020. If you purchased a ticket back in 2020, a link to the early registration page will be sent via email on January 19th.

We chose Fort Worden for this symposium with the comfort of all IFFS attendees in mind. The campus is flat and fully accessible via paved walkways connecting all buildings we will use. Both the dorms and shared homes are within a short walk of the cafeteria and the USO, our main meeting area.

Our favorite aspect of attending the symposium is making new friends and networking with people who share common interests. There are several community spaces throughout the campus to chat and work on crafts in between symposium events.
