Open Filking

What’s an Open Filk?

Open Filks are drop-in music circles! Join us to share a song, sing-a-long, or just enjoy listening to the music and friendly atmosphere.

What can I play at an Open Filk?

Different people have different definitions about “what counts as filk,” but here at DragonCon we often say anything that gets played at a filk circle counts as filk! Originals about nerdy or personal topics, parodies, SCA or traditional tunes, even music from your favorite movies and TV shows! A cappella, acoustic, electric, medieval, show tunes… We’ve heard it all!


What if I can’t play an instrument or don’t like to sing in public?

No problem! While we love to encourage other nerds to share music, it’s 100% fine if you’d rather just sit and listen.
