Dance your butt off and help Travelers Rest Farmers Market raise funds to make sure their 2015 season is an even bigger success than this year’s incredible market season! Farmers Contra Fundraiser is November 8th at Trailblazer Park from 6-10pm and you can get your tickets tonight!
Never heard of Contra dancing? You’re in for a treat! Prepare to dance, stomp, and swirl until you’re drenched in sweat! Here’s what contra dancing looks like:
Fun, right?! I went to the River Falls Lodge contra dancing on Saturday nights a couple of years ago and danced and grinned until my face hurt. It’s seriously something you have to try.
The evening will start with a community-style potluck dinner made by local farmers and chefs, then The Blue Ridge Rounders will get the party started with Jenny Wakefield calling. If you don’t know how to Contra dance, no problem! A beginner lesson will take place before the dance.
Tickets are $25 for an adult including a t-shirt, $15 for an adult and $5 for child over 1 year. Tickets for kids include entry to the Contra Kids Adventure tent with lots of activities led by the lovely Lynne Holcombe.
Tickets are available every Thursday at the Harvest Market and Swamp Rabbit Cafe, or call 864-907-6924 for tickets. Tickets are limited, so get yours now!
