Winter Music Festival Sponsorships

We’re grateful for the support of our Winter Music Festival sponsors.  Without them, the festival would look and sound much different than it does today.  If you’d like to become a part of our dynamic festival, please contact:

Kirk Mlinek
President, Friends of the Florence Events Center

Bonnie MacDuffee
Treasurer, Friends of the Florence Events Center

For 16 years, the Winter Music Festival, presented by the Friends of the Florence Events Center, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, has been bringing the very best in traditional and acoustic music to Florence, OR. When folks along the central Oregon coast and surrounding areas think of bluegrass, folk, Americana, and gospel music, they think Winter Music Festival. The festival takes place at the end of January each year in the beautifully-appointed Florence Events Center (FEC).

In addition to 11 bands performing in the FEC’s gorgeous 400-seat theater, we also offer after-hours jams, food and libations, and the Florence Regional Arts Alliance (FRAA) Winter Arts Festival.   FRAA’s arts festival, free to the public and also located at the FEC, is a curated event comprised of 32 of the area’s best artists.
