The FSGW’s MidWinter Festival will be online this year. If the pandemic surge wasn't enough reason for not gathering in person, our usual physical location (Takoma Park Middle School) is undergoing renovations.
Celebrate the middle of winter from the comfort, safety, and warmth of your own home via the Internet on the evening of Sunday, February 6, starting at 7:00 pm (Eastern time), and running until past 10:00 pm. We’ll be using the Zoom platform, and if we can have a dance track, we will use breakout rooms to allow multiple simultaneous possibilities.
Our concert track presents a selection of great DC-area performers from diverse genres; if you aren't familiar with them yet, they are sure to become favorites of your when we introduce you to them.
The FSGW Midwinter Festival usually includes twelve hours of dance workshops plus an evening dance—all of which are participatory. As of press date, the final decision regarding whether to host a short Zoom dance segment is on hold. Watch the website and e-blasts for updates.
Given the uncertainties of the pandemic, the information listed here is subject to change. Check for updates on this page and from e-mail blasts for updates and changes.
To register for the Zoom link for the evening, go to the Mid-Winter Festival page for more details, and to register for the Zoom link.
The event is offered free of charge, but we hope that if you are able, you’ll donate generously to support the performers. Support the 2022 Mid-Winter Festival performers
