Street Dances features Blue Ridge Tradition and an Open Dance Floor Demonstration

July 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


In 2019, the annual summer tradition of The Street Dances celebrates its 101st anniversary! The Street Dances began in 1918, when the citizens of Hendersonville took to the street to welcome home the soldiers from WWI. The Dances features mountain heritage bluegrass music, square dancing and clogging every Monday evening from July 8th through August 12th. On each of these 6 Monday nights, starting at 6:30pm, the caller, William Puckett, will teach audience members some basic square dancing moves so that everyone can join in on the fun led by the evening’s clogging group.

Week 4 in the series features music by Blue Ridge Tradition and an Open Dance Floor Demonstration. If you (or your group/organization) want to participate in the demonstration, plan to bring (family friendly) music with you and check in at the side of the stage when called up. You will have 3 minutes to demonstrate your skills in clogging, square dancing or line dancing.

In addition to your dancing shoes, bring a chair to enjoy an evening filled with live music, dancing and entertainment from 7 – 9pm. The audience seating area opens after 5:30pm, and early admission is prohibited. Admission is free. No alcoholic beverages, backpacks or coolers allowed.

Please leave your pets comfortably at home. A Hendersonville City ordinance allows event organizers to exclude animals from the event space for the health, safety and welfare of the community, dogs, patrons, and vendors and their products.

In case of inclement weather, the concert will be postponed until 8pm. If the weather does not improve by 8pm the performance will be cancelled.
