2016 Silent Auction

Folk Music Ontario’s annual Silent Auction – one of FMO’s main fundraising activities – will once again be held at this year’s conference. Donors and volunteers have carefully put together an intriguing collection of items that in many ways are “one of a kind”. We hope you’ll support FMO and our donors, and keep track of our growing list of items. Check this page frequently!

A partial list of the available items appears below. Full details about each will be posted at the auction tables. The FMO Silent Auction will open at 10:00am Friday, October 21 and close Saturday, October 22 at 8:00pm.
