On Friday evening starting at 5:30 PM we will feature Katie Trautz and her fabulous Cajun band. They will play that seductive chank-a-chank music from the bayou country for your dancing pleasure until 7 PM.
At 8:00 PM PAMFest proudly presents Wild Asparagus with master caller George Marshall. Arguably one of the finest contra dance bands in this world they will take you on a magical contra dance journey as you dance amongst the stars!
Contra dances are fun for one and all, from the beginner to the seasoned expert. George will provide clear, detailed instructions and a walk-through before the start of each dance. Should you take a "wrong turn" during a dance, you will find that fellow dancers are happy to help guide you through the tricky bits!
For those that would like a little extra preparation, there will be an Intro to Contra mini-workshop starting at 7:30 PM, just before the main event.
Admission to the Friday Evening Dance is achieved by having either a Friday Evening Dance ticket or the Weekend Pass Ticket. Wrist bands will be checked to gain admission to the dance.
There is a Concert at the church on Friday evening at the same time as the Friday Evening Dance - please be certain, when buying tickets that you buy the correct ticket as concert tickets will not be honored at the dance and vice versa - if you would like the option of moving between the two venues you are welcome to purchase a ticket for each event or purchase the Weekend Pass which provides access to all weekend activities.
