Ladies and Gentlemen, the New York City MegaDopefest Planning Committee is pleased to announce the scheduling of NY MegaDopefest V for the weekend of Friday, October 15 to Sunday October 17, 2004.
This is a major change from our four previous MegaDopefests, which have each been in January. We decided to make a change because the January weather has been, well, January weather. We thought we could better show off many of the great outdoor attributes and activities that the City has if we planned the Dopefest for a season with better weather.
Things are in the early planning stages, but we expect this Dopefest’s format to be similar to prior ones. We’ll kick off with a welcome gathering on Friday night. During the day on Saturday and Sunday, we’ll have smaller group cultural, recreational, educational, shopping and/or dining activities. Saturday night will be the MegaDopefest dinner and after-dinner gathering. And finally, on Sunday, we’ll probably have an ethnic food dinner and wind-down meet-up.
As the weekend gets closer, we’ll fill in the details, as well as provide travel and lodging suggestions. As usual we’re interested in hearing what potential attendees think about the plans.
And perhaps most importantly, the Committee has been informed that Saturday October 16 is National Feral Cat Day. An appropriate observance of this significant event will, no doubt, be planned.
