Saturday, November 3, 7:30 - 10PM Blissfest Saturday Night Community Dance

No special skills, clothes or shoes required.  The Blissfest Music Organization and Red Sky Stage  present this monthly series as part of our commitment to sharing cultural heritage and providing a great way to socialize like folks used to do.  This month, the band will be  Harbor HoeDown and the callers are .Cynthia Donahey and Jan Fowler.

Wednesday November 7,  7 pm Songwriter's Showcase

Benefit to Support Blissfest Lamb's Retreat Scholarship Program
This was one of our most loved events last year so we are bringing it back.  The 24th annual Lamb's Retreat for Songwriters is taking place November 1-11, 2018.  This event brings some of the best songwriters and aspiring songwriters right into our neighborhood.  Again this year, we are taking full advantage by scheduling a songwriter showcase right between the two  weekends of the Retreat and bringing together a collection of those great songwriters to perform on our stage. 

The performers have agreed to donate their portion of the proceeds from the showcase to the Blissfest Lamb’s Retreat Scholarship Program.  This scholarship encourages aspiring songwriters by providing financial assistance to enable youth and adults the opportunity to participate in the Lamb’s Retreat experience.
