FSGW Group Events

Welcome to the Group Events pages. You, the attendees, are the only performers here, well, except for the festivals, that is.

The enjoyment and enthusiasm are always present. Newcomers are always welcome and encouraged to join in. If this kind of thing is new to you and you feel a little timid, don't let that stand in your way. There's always room for you to watch awhile until you're ready to join in.

See the calendar of Coming Events below.
