BFMS is having in-person events again! Being mindful of the need to protect those most at risk of infection from Covid-19, we are requiring effective mask wearing, proof of vaccination and online ticket purchasing (allows contact tracing) for many events. We intend to adjust as the situation changes. We look forward to seeing you in-person soon!

Admission is: $10 BFMS Members & Affiliates, $15 non-members. Under 21 and full-time students with ID: $7 members, $10 non-members.
Beginners, singles, couples, and families are welcome. No Experience necessary; you don't need to bring a partner.
