FSGW's Mid-Winter Festival is a great way to cure your mid-winter blues.
Usually the first Saturday in February, the Mid-Winter Festival transforms the Takoma Park Middle School into a festival site, with two dance floors, a storytelling room, a jams room, four rooms for intimate concerts and workshops, and the "big stage" in the school cafeteria. There are crafts for sale and unscheduled hallway shenanigans, frequently involving local Morris teams.
Daytime programs run from noon to 6 pm; there's a brief break (6-7:30) for dinner on your own then at 7:30 there's both a concert AND a dance and you may participate in both.

Our wonderful volunteers arrive early and help with set-up, sell tickets, staff the secure instrument check room and make the event go smoothly. We are fully staffed this year, but we can always use extra hands at the end of the evening to load out.
