Dances are held Friday evenings, 6:30 – 9:00 pm, in front of the historic Haywood County Courthouse. The Main Street area, immediately in front of the courthouse, is closed to traffic and parking at 5:00 pm. Instead of the usual cars‚ attendees will find a stage, bleachers, and asphalt covered with a thick dusting of corn meal to create a dance area. Bring a lawn chair or blanket, limited bleacher seating is available. Bring your dancin’ shoes but please leave pets at home as they are not allowed by Town ordinance. Light refreshments are available at the venue for purchase and downtown restaurants are open for dinner. Lively instructions are given by master of ceremonies and dance caller, Joe Sam Queen, who throughout the evening teaches audience members some basic square dancing in the traditional Appalachian style. Each night features a bluegrass band, performances by a local clogging team, and intermission entertainment by The Trantham Family.
