When the settlements in Alberta were young, weekend nights were barn dance nights: occasions to see friends, hear lively music, and kick up your heels. Young men chased young ladies. Mothers chased their kids. Even the grandparents were there, dancing, swapping stories, and having fun. Now you can relive those times! Join in the spirit of the country dance, at a real barn, in the rolling hills of southwest Alberta. Thousands of local folks and visitors from Germany to Japan have gathered ‘round the barn for great dancing, great food, and great fun at the Great Canadian Barn Dance. The regular Saturday night dinner & dances and Friday night Dinner Shows feature the live music of the Kunkel Family. You can join in complimentary dance lessons and horse drawn hay rides, and with no liquor allowed at the dance it's an event the whole family can enjoy.
