Family Open House
Saturday, February 26, 2011, 12:00 pm an afternoon of workshops and performances free
February 26 12:00 pm

Join us this afternoon for our Winter Open House! This family-friendly edition features free performances and workshops for folks, kids, and folks with kids.

Music fills the Freight from ceiling to roof as we throw open our doors from noon to 4:00 pm for an amazing array of workshops, song circles, storytelling, kid-pleasing performances, and much more! Dancing in the aisles, singing on the stairs, and fiddling in the lobby are sure to ensue as we invite the entire East Bay music-making community (including you!) to meet for an afternoon's extravaganza.
