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

Music fills the Freight we throw open our doors from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm for an amazing array of song circles, storytelling, kid-pleasing performances, and much more! Dancing in the aisles, singing on the stairs, and hijinx in the lobby are sure to ensue as we invite the entire music-making community (including you!) to meet for this daytime extravaganza.


11:00 am – noon
