Book your hotels!

This is a reminder to start booking your hotels for ECTC weekend! Hotels fill up fast especially if you would like to book with the discounts that we’ve provided for you on our website. But again, these are not your only options. There are many great hotels in Ithaca that we have not listed so pick the one that works best for you!

Last call for concert applications!

This is a reminder that there are THREE DAYS LEFT to apply for a spot to perform in ECTC’s final concert! After December 31st we will not be accepting anymore requests to perform and if you have not submitted an application, you cannot perform. The application is located on the registrations page of our website. We can’t wait to see what exciting performances you have planned for us!

Information about vendors

We are pleased to announce that we are working with various sponsors such as Kadon, Asano Taiko, DIY Taiko, and Taiko Community Alliance to make ECTC the best it can be! Throughout the weekend, make sure to stop by their booths to chat with them and check out their products. For more information about vendors please click HERE. In addition, if you are interested in setting up a marketplace/information booth during the conference, please contact!

Apply to perform in the final concert!

As you all know, ECTC will include a final concert in which attendees will be able to showcase taiko pieces of their choice and their passion for taiko. We wish all attendees could perform but unfortunately, there is a limited number of slots in the concert. So, if your group is interested in performing or collaborating with another group during the concert, please fill out our application to perform! We will only be choosing performers from the groups that fill out the application. We can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!
