It's our 9th Annual Redwood Coast Belly Dance Festival in Arcata, CA

Redwood Coast Belly Dance Festival is presented by Shoshanna and Mosaic Productions, a non-profit Dream Maker program of The Ink People Center for the Arts. We're delighted to invite you to our 9th annual event, celebrating a diverse showcase of the many styles that make up BELLY DANCING. Our festival features amazing performances by dancers from across the region, great shopping, incredible workshops, henna, food.... and more!

For locals, Redwood Coast Belly Dance Festival is an excellent event for the whole family to enjoy. For traveling dance friends, Arcata might be a bit of a drive, but we make it a fun experience for all.
