Squirrel Moon Contra Dance Weekend

2020 Dance Cancelled

Sadly, Squirrel Moon 2020 (September 18-20) has been cancelled. In addition to health risks associated with dancing, we can’t imagine how our dancers could safely prepare and serve food for the 100+ of us, most of whom are also sleeping and bathing together onsite. We’re still hopeful for the return of Squirrel Moon, currently scheduled for Sep 17-19, 2021.

General Information

Squirrel Moon takes place in the lovely Farwell Hall at Folklore Village, a nationally recognized folk arts and culture center. It's located in the country just 45 minutes from Madison, Wisconsin.

Tenting and bunkhouses are on-site, and there are several motels within a short drive.

Please register early; we sell out every year.
