Portland Roadhouse Contra Dance Showcase

March 12, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 9:00 pm


March 12th, 2017 will be the 8th year for the Portland Roadhouse event — a 10-hour contra dance with different bands and callers playing eight 65-minute slots. The calling and music is all volunteer (unpaid) except for travel expenses for those coming from out of town. In addition to serving as a showcase for contra dance music and calling along the I-5 corridor, the Roadhouse is a benefit for the Northwest Folklife Festival.

Proceeds from Portland Roadhouse benefit Northwest Folklife and its programs. An invitation to become a Friend of Folklife will be part of the event. Levels of support begin at $50, and all current Friends of Folklife as of 4/26/17 will receive a Festival Guide by mail in May. Learn more.
