Events

Every other year, Area 12 holds a conference that brings together the ringers throughout its region: from Hawaii and Nevada to parts up and down the state of California. For this reason, the Area 12 conference moves around. During off-conference years, regions hold spring rings, directors’ workshops, and other educational events. And there are always handbell concerts to be found, especially at Christmas time.

To learn more about the Area 12 conference, check the Area 12 conference page for updates as they become available.

To add your concert to the calendar, you can submit the event online or contact the webmaster with the name of the group, date, time, and venue address of the event.
