Membership: Join Us!
The Folklore Society of Greater Washington, established 1964, produces more than 200 events every year: concerts by local and touring artists, weekly dances with great callers and live music, a family dance appropriate for all ages, storytelling events, jams, sings, workshops, two annual festivals, and two annual retreats.
All of our events are open to everyone, but members get free admission to some 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.
