The Barnacle State Park Old Time Contra Dance
Dance to lively acoustic music in Coconut Grove
Music by Cornbread Dance Band

Usually every fourth Sunday of the month, September through April,  
an Old-Time /Barn or Contra Dance is held at the historic Barnacle State Park 
from 6:30 to 10 pm, right off the main street of legendary Coconut Grove.

The dance is the nicest venue in South Florida, an outdoor covered pavilion with a 
wood floor, located right on Biscayne Bay. Each dance features a caller to instruct 
new dancers and a live acoustic band. There is a snack table where dancers 
contribute snacks and goodies, enjoyed at the break in the middle of the dance.

New for 2017 is an optional Family dance for parents to dance
with their children, with a workshop and regular dancing to follow.

Contra dances have a long tradition of remaining low-key, welcoming of newcomers,
just for fun,informal and family friendly. The Park features an Historic House and 
Boat Building plus lots of open grass area for blankets and picnic tables.

There are several parking lots in Coconut Grove close to the Park.

Admission is only $10.
