2020 Mid-Winter Folk Festival
February 1 @ 12:00 pm - 10:30 pm
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. Kids will find fun in the Family Room with music and dancing just for them, including a pirate adventure, and an open mic for those 12 and under.
Daytime programs run from noon to 6 pm; there’s a brief break (6-7:30) for dinner on your own (the Subway food providers will close at 6:30), then at 7:30 there’s both a concert AND a dance and you may participate in both.
