The Folklore Society of Greater Washington, established 1964, produces more than 200 events every year:
All of our events are open to everyone, but members get free admission to some events and discounts on most. And when you Join FSGW, you are helping us keep these programs affordable while paying artists fair fees for their work. You become a steward of the living tradition.

FSGW creates and programs events that are directly related to the non-profit. These events include yearly events which have their own subcommittee such as the Washington Folk Festival and select dance and concert series that are programmed by the board Dance Chair and Concert Chair, respectively.
FSGW lends financial, technological, and marketing aid to programs who apply for a co-sponsor ship with us. Benefits of being co-sponsored include:
We advertise local events too! Local events and festivals can submit a listing to our newsletter, which we send out to our 750+ members.
Calendar and website listings are reserved for FSGW programmed and co-sponsored events.
