Sadly, due to the ongoing pandemic we have cancelled the 2022 Salem Folklore Community Westwind Weekend.  We are highly optimistic for 2023, and hope to see you all there on May 5-7, 2023.


Westwind is a non-profit that relies on revenue from venue users (like us), school programs and contributions. During these difficult times we encourage you to donate to Westwind to help them through the rest of this year. 


Two options for donating:


1) Donate online through their website


2) Mail a check (to avoid credit card fees) to:



5933 NE Win Sivers Drive

Suite 202

Portland, OR 97220. 


All of us on the Westwind Weekend Committee look forward to next year.


Thank you.

Welcome to Westwind

Westwind Weekend is an all-volunteer weekend where campers (that’s you) bring their music & dancing talents to create the magic.  Expect two evenings of dance, including family dances, contra, Scandinavian, and swing. Expect a campers’ concert Saturday night, music jams all day and into the night (Irish, old-time, swing and more).  And take plenty of time to walk on the beach, dig in the sand, and hike to the high meadow.

Camp Westwind is located just north of Lincoln City and just south of Cascade Head. The camp is accessed only by boat across the Salmon River.  Timing for the crossings depends of the timing of high tides.  Check the "Updates" section at top right for info on times of arrival and departure from camp.
