THANK YOU to everyone who made the festival a success in 2013! The rain could have been a bummer this time around, but all of you kept on playing in the rain and made it an event to remember!
- Coming Soon!
Would you like to teach a skill, lead a discussion or share something at WhoDat? Please do!
Though these events are self-run and walk-in teachers will always be welcome, email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance so that we can promote and prepare for your workshop. There are a limited number of slots!
Check back for updates here as more workshops are scheduled!
Doodad Farm is at 4701 Land Road, in Greensboro, NC (View a map), 10 minutes east of downtown Greensboro and right off Interstate 40/Interstate 85 Business.
Take exit 226 on 40/85 Business, McConnell Road, and head south about 1/4 mile til you make a right on Hooting Hollow Road. Take the next right at Land Road, and continue to the end, where you’ll see a sign for Doodad Farm.
Parking is in a field: please allow someone to help you park when you arrive to minimize risk of damage to your or others’ property.
Carpooling is awesome and we strongly suggest it! Want to carpool? Post/request rides to WhoDat on our Facebook page.
GROUP BIKE RIDE SATURDAY!
If you’d like to join in a group bike ride to WhoDat Saturday morning, our friend Mike Palmer is leading a casual ride out to the farm. Meet at the bike racks outside of the Green Bean downtown at 11AM for a lesiurely ride down to the festival (~6.5 miles, doable for beginners!). Mike will also lead a skillshare onsite Saturday afternoon.

- Glass wind chimes
- Cigar box guitars
- Handmade jewelry and clothing
- Face painting
If you make or know people who make ETHICALLY PRODUCED, HAND-MADE art or other NON-FOOD, LOCALLY PRODUCED or SECOND-HAND objects/services, we are pleased to offer VERY affordable spaces at WhoDat to sell these goods. Please contact email@example.com about selling your wares!
Please note that we do not provide electricity, shade, or lighting, so please plan to have a free-standing set-up with any materials you need, including battery-powered lights if you wish to remain open into the night.
NEW THIS YEAR: If you are a small-scale artist or crafter and don’t have the quantity or set-up for a freestanding booth, we are offering a Doodad Farm merch area where we will sell small pieces for you in a store-like porch off an old tobacco barn. A small percentage of the profit would go to cover costs instead of you paying an up-front fee. For more info, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
