Winter festival

The lowdown -- The Winter Family Festival at the Walters Art Museum may not be your typical wintry celebration, but it is still true to its name. The winter arts festival, Saturday throughout the museum, celebrates winter south of the equator. Families can enjoy music from Inca Son and Downtown Rhythm Express, storytelling of Candace Wolf, rainforest-themed music from the Fun Company, flamenco dancing from Arte Flamenco, and exotic arts-and-crafts activities.

If you go -- The festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Walters Art Museum, 600 N. Charles St. Free. Call 410-547-9000.

Merry operetta

The lowdown -- Financial constraints have kept the Municipal Opera Company of Baltimore from staging a full production for a year or so, but this worthy community ensemble, dedicated to fostering minority singers, returns this weekend with Lehar's frothy operetta, The Merry Widow. Altheia Anthony and Dawn Tally will alternate performances of the title role; Shaina Vatz and Melinda Blum will do the same with the role of Valencienne. Kevin McCalister will sing the role of Danilo.

If you go -- Performances are at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 4 p.m. Sunday in the Douglass High School Auditorium, 2301 Gwynns Falls Parkway. Tickets are $24; $17 for senior citizens and students. Call 410-329-6874.
