Winter Swing Festival – Next cut-off date

WSF Flyer 2019 - LargeThe next important cut off date for registration for the Winter Swing Festival is June 21 – if you’re planning on coming to the dinner-dance you MUST register by that date!  We need to pass final numbers onto the kitchen at that time.

You can still register and attend the dinner-dance after that date, but we CANNOT guarantee you a meal (and the cost to attend will still be the same).

Register now!

Well, check out these videos below to see a great performance of the Lindy Chorus for Frankie 100! (note the videos are the same, one of them is just in sepia, if you prefer that old time look…)
