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 (sometimes there's dancing during the lull), then at 7:30 there's both a concert AND a dance.

We always need volunteers to arrive early and help with set-up, or sell tickets, or staff the secure instrument check room. Let us know if you would like to help out!
