In the past we've spread out our Square Dance over three days, with two evening dances on Friday and Saturday and a kid friendly event during the afternoon on Sunday. This year we're changing it up by moving to a two-day schedule but extending our Saturday programming. That's the same number of barn-stomping hours, but now with a family-friendly Saturday afternoon ramping up into an evening party.

As always, we'll have our signature dancing with featured called Dave Harvey of NYC Barn Dance returning this year to teach some steps alongside the boot-stomping stylings of the Calamity Janes on Friday night and the Backyard Boys and The Remedies on Saturday. Square dance sets on Saturday will begin around 3:30pm and 6:30pm, with live folk and bluegrass music in between.

From 3pm – 6pm on Saturday, little cowboys and cowgirls will want to mosey on over to the northwest corner of the lawn for Kids Corner. We’ll have western-themed crafts and sack races. Additionally, square dance instruction during this time will be at its kid-friendliest, featuring dances that are fun and do-si-doable by the whole family.
All weekend, we'll have western-themed giveaways by the wagon-load. You can also ham it up at our #bpsquaredance photo opps, challenge your friends to a game of cornhole, and enter the raffle for our grand prize - two round-trip airline tickets, courtesy of Southwest Airlines! We'll also have a few surprises revealed the day-of, so keep an eye out.
Country festive attire is encouraged. Be there and be square!
