Held in and around Charlotte, North Carolina, it is one of the region's most famous March events with more than 100 people from around the country celebrating.
It is not necessary to grow a beard (mustache portion shaved), wear an ill-fitting suit (with no tie), suspenders, or a wide-brimmed straw hat to enjoy this annual event. Nor is it necessary to return to a life of simple humility and lack of modern amenities afterwards.
The first day of Rumspringa always coincides and begins with the first tip-off of the first game on the first Thursday of the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship Round-of-64 and lasts until the end of the last game that determines the last team to advance to the Final Four. While other celebratory activities are welcome and encouraged during Rumspringa, the festival is generally associated with March Madness, St. Patrick’s Day, and the vernal equinox. Although this year, Rumspringa and the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship Round-of-64 will start after St. Patrick’s Day and the first day of spring.
