Friday January 5 is Twelfth Night in 2019, but this year, the Main Street Museum has decided to hold their annual Twelfth Night Party & Christmas Tree Burning on Friday Jan 11, which works out just fine for us, as it allows our other band, Celebration Brass Band, to host the first ever Twelfth Night Carnival Kickoff at the Club VT in Putney on Jan 5!
No matter, really…. We have had a blast playing this party at the Main Street Museum for going on five or six years now. It’s a family event. Bring your old Christmas tree for the bonfire, which usually starts around 6 pm. Host David Fairbanks Ford always makes some good and creative gumbo for this event, and not only that, he serves up a killer punch bowl on the side to boot. Live music and dance instruction start around 7 pm, depending on the crowd. This is a super informal event with the crowd moving back & forth between the the bonfire, the back deck, and the dance floor. Discriminating dancers will not turn their noses up at the dance floor here. It’s wood, well worn but still smooth, and cozy, like the dance floor at Fred’s Lounge might be, if Fred’s Lounge were owned by the Adams Family.
Early ending event. Rarely lasts beyond 10 pm. So come early, and have some some fun with us at WRJ’s unique cabinet of curiosities! Admission is usually by donation. $5 or $10; $20 Family price.
