Adult Weekend

We are excited to announce that Adult Weekend will be held from October 1-3, 2021 in Memphis, TN! We can’t wait to see you there!

What is Adult Weekend?

When adults with albinism gather, something magical happens. Differences in cultures, ethnicities, age, and more fade, and similarities of experiences take center stage. Friendships are forged and lives changed. Adult weekends are an opportunity for adults with albinism to gather together as a small group and enjoy time with each other. For some, these weekends are a much anticipated chance to see old friends and for first-timers, an opportunity to meet new people and begin building those lifelong friendships for which the entire NOAH community is known.

Registration is now closed! See you in Memphis!

Activities ~ Lodging ~ Registration Fees ~ Tentative Schedule ~ COVID-19 Protocols

Come enjoy some Memphis favorites like Friday night BBQ, Saturday museum tours to connect you with the rich history and musical culture of this iconic city, educational sessions that will support community building and day-to-day life hacks.
