Square Dance Returns to the Big City!

Dust off those cowboy boots and belt buckles, because Bryant Park Square Dance is back! We're making it even bigger and better this year with more music, more food, and more excitement!

Music: Warm up with country blues band Woody Pines, then do-si-do the night away with our featured live caller Pat Cannon and her boot-stomping Foot and Fiddle Dance Co. on the main stage. No experience? No partner? No problem! We'll pair y'all up and teach ya the steps.

Food: Come hungry for finger-licking fixings, sips, and suds for purchase by 'wichcraft. Looking to upgrade your Square Dance? Purchase a VIP Ticket on Gilt City for unlimited barbecue and drinks.

Fun: Try your hand at some classic lawn games, learn how to lasso, and ham it up in the photo booth.

Win: We've got western themed giveaways, and chances to win Southwest Airlines tickets and Bryant Park goodies, so you won't want to miss this one.


September 9th, 20th, and 25th. Food and music start at 5:30pm. Dancing starts around 6:15pm. Yeehaw!
