Our annual membership year is coming to a close. So... we decided to THROW A PARTY for the folk community… and YOU are invited! This event will combine our monthly Song Swap with our annual Membership Drive. (Details below.)
Effective September 30th, 2017, ALL memberships in Broward Folk Club will expire. If you are a current member, now is the time to renew! If you are new to the Broward Folk Club, now is a great time to join. Please come out, join the party, and support the Broward Folk Club. Membership DOES have its rewards. Membership means you get discounts to our monthly concert series as well as discounted tickets for the 2018 South Florida Folk Festival.
This party is FREE to all renewing members. (If you choose not to join, that’s okay… all are welcome to celebrate with us. There will be a $5 fee for non-members to help defray the costs of the event.) Info on renewing (or joining BFC for the first time) is at the bottom.
