Welcome to the 2017 California State Square Dance Convention Web Site!
December 4, 2016
Fellow Square Dancers:
We would like you to join us and welcome you to the 57th California State Square Dance Convention, “California Great Outdoors.” The 57th California State Square Dance Convention will be held April 7 through 9, 2017 at the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds in Victorville, California. Our committee is working hard to put together a great convention for you.
The featured staff includes Dee Dee Dougherty-Lottie from Minneapolis, Minnesota; Bronc Wise from Lakewood, Colorado; Mike Seastrom from Los Angeles, California; and Jay Henderson from San Luis Obispo, California; calling. James Caton will be calling the line dancing on Saturday and Bill Sutman will do the handi-capable program. Peter & Chama Gomez from Berthoud, Colorado; Zena & Ernie Beaulieu from Culver City, California; and Shauna Kaaria from Redlands, California, are the cuers for the convention.
The 57th California State Square Dance Convention will kick-off on Thursday, April 6, 2017 with a “Trails End Square Dance” that you won’t want to miss. The dance will feature Vic Kaaria on squares and Shauna Kaaria on rounds. The actual convention begins Friday and will consist of multi-level square and round dancing, several very interesting Education Panels, Exhibitions, Fashion Show, Silent Auction, and a Quilt Raffle.
Two food vendors, (BBQ & Tacos), will be preparing delectable offerings on site Friday afternoon and all day Saturday for those not wishing to go off site to eat. All parking will be free and on the south side of the dance halls. We have plenty of camping sites available for those wishing to be close to the action. The fairgrounds boasts 125 full and partial hookup RV sites in their RV Park and another 100 hookup sites throughout the facility.
We look forward to dancing with you in a square or round at the 57th California State Square Dance Convention, “California Great Outdoors.”
