“Palisades Barn Dance”

Sunday, May 4, 2014, at Alpine Pavilion

Hudson River Barn Dance

The Palisades Interstate Park in New Jersey will host an old-fashioned barn dance on Sunday afternoon, May 4, from 2 to 4 PM. Open to all, the dance will be held at the park’s Alpine Pavilion, an open-air covered structure built from native stone and timbers eighty years ago, during the “hard winter” of 1934, by New Deal workers.

Back by popular demand and accompanied by the Stopgap String Band, Dave Harvey, founder of New York City Barn Dance, will call the dances, offering simple but effective instruction to newcomers and experienced dancers alike. No reservations, experience, or partner are needed to attend, and visitors are welcome to stay for as long — or as short — a time as they like. $1 hot dogs will be on sale throughout the dance, with proceeds benefitting the restoration of the park’s historic Kearney House, which was badly damaged during Hurricane Sandy, and is expected to reopen again for the first time later this spring

Alpine Pavilion is at the north end of the park’s Alpine Picnic Area, adjacent to Alpine Boat Basin, accessible from the park’s Alpine entrance off U.S. Route 9W, about a mile north of Closter Dock Road, or from Exit 2 of the Palisades Interstate Parkway. The program is cosponsored by the Palisades Parks Conservancy.
