FoldFest 2021 pioneered the use of the platform to provide an interactive component to the online event. It was so popular that OrigamiUSA created a new Origami Café in Gather for people to use throughout the year! During FoldFest Spring 2023, the Origami Café will be available to all FoldFest 2023 registrants. We hope that, during the breaks between sessions, event attendees may walk around this virtual world to find old friends and to meet new ones. Attendees can use this space to organize their own mini classes, show off their models, organize folding competitions, or just fold in the company of others. If you are new to the platform, you can find a brief introduction to Gather here.

While the Origami Café is always open to people who have registered for that space, the FoldFest room will open from April 22, 10:00 am EDT to April 23, 10:00am EDT. Gather.Town works best using the Chrome web browser on a laptop or desktop computer. It does not work well on a mobile device.

We will email a link to the FoldFest Spring 2023 Gather room when we send the Zoom links for the event on April 21, 1:00pm EDT. You can also log in to Gather during the event at the following link:
