2019 Event Status / Latest UpdatesOur event is in production for Feb. 9, 2019. Earlybird deadlines are January 18, 2019. Deadline has passed. Registration now closed for Teams, Duets, and Choreographed Solos. Registration will be open on Feb. 9, from 9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. for Spectator admission (see tab in this section), freestyle solos, acapella solos, flatfoot solos, and short duets. The 2019 event does NOT feature a workshop. We hope to add it back in the future. In the meantime, check out our Sautee Stomp clogging workshop in Helen, Georgia on the last weekend of September.
Workshop and RegistrationWithout the Florida Clogging Festival, there would be no clogging competition in the state of Florida where teams can qualify for nationals. For the 2019 edition of our event, we were displaced from the Osceola County Fair and struggled to find a new venue. At this time, we know that the competition will be held at the Putnam County Fairgrounds in East Palatka, Florida--giving the teams that opportunity to qualify for national competition. There will be no workshop in the 2019 event. Hopefully we will add it back in the future.
