13th Annual Contra Marathon – Benefit for NW Folklife

March 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

$8 – $12

6 bands, 17 callers – 3 hours non-stop fun, no walk thrus! Though the music doesn’t stop, dancers can jump in and out at both ends of the lines to rehydrate, change partners (& shirts!), and rest. It’s “open band” all evening – musicians are welcome to sit in; the entire program (with tunes & keys) will be posted at the hall. New dancers are encouraged to attend the free intro workshop at 7 pm, and experienced dancers will be offering their “helping hands” throughout the evening.
