2020 Spring Hop

Join the Friends for the 2020 Spring Hop fundraiser!
Saturday, April 25th

It is with heavy hearts that we need to postpone our Spring Hop.

We plan to reschedule a celebratory Post-COVID-19 Swing dance once “Social Distancing” is no longer the recommended practice.

Folklore Village continues to have expenses such as staffing, building maintenance, liability insurance, and utilities.

If you are able, please make a donation to Folklore Village, either through the Friends of Folklore Village, or to Folklore Village directly.

If you have already purchased tickets, we will contact you about how you would like to handle your ticket refund.

You have three options:

  1. We will send you a full refund
  2. You may donate all or a portion of your refund to support Folklore Village
  3. You can request a FFV Credit which you may use at a future event put on by the Friends of Folklore Village

We will be in touch soon!
