We like to think of Spin Off Autumn Retreat (SOAR) as a spinner’s paradise. Imagine being in a room filled with people with the same interests while you learn from some of the top spinners and educators. You are all together for five glorious days in a beautiful location, making new memories, skill-building, and, of course, spinning! That’s precisely what this annual retreat is like.

One attendee who has been to more SOAR events than anyone else shared this in this earlier post: “The venue for SOAR has changed over the years, but the quality and depth of teaching has always been excellent. The sharing by teachers and fellow students alike has made me a more confident teacher who’s able to solve problems. If you have never been to a SOAR event, you should add it to the top of your bucket list.”

For 40 years, SOAR has been a beloved institution, gathering far-flung spinners every fall. Like many long-running events, it can mean something different for each attendee. It can be a chance to see friends each year or an opportunity to learn from instructors from around the world. It can also be an escape and a great shopping experience. Whether you’ve been to 15, 20, or even 30 of the past SOAR events, or you’ve been longing to see for yourself what all the fuss is about, here are a few details to keep in mind:

Event dates: The SOAR 2024 event will be held in York, Pennsylvania, from October 6–11, 2024. So, be sure to save those dates and join us for five days of spinning, special evening events, and a lot of fun.
