7th Annual Family Barn Dance

Come one, come all. It’s the seventh annual old-fashioned Family Barn Dance with contra dancing and live fiddle music at the Congers Lake Memorial Park Auditorium on Friday, November 17 from 7 to 9:30 p.m.

This fun family event always draws a crowd and guarantees to be a lively, footstompin’ time for all. Children of all ages are welcome, and no previous dance experience is necessary. Renowned dance caller, Eric Hollman, will lead the way as guests keep step to live, traditional fiddle tunes from Ireland, New England, Appalachia and beyond. This year’s musical lineup includes Nyack’s own Ian Moore on fiddle and Matt Greenhill on guitar.

There will be a fun raffle and silent auction and refreshments for sale including freshly-popped popcorn, local pickles, as well as cider, donuts and apples from The Orchards of Concklin. The event is sponsored by Just Energy, and all proceeds to benefit the Ruth Schaeffer Scholarship Fund at Blue Rock School in West Nyack.

Admission: $10. Location: Congers Lake Memorial Park Auditorium, 6 Gilchrest Rd. in Congers. Tickets available at and also at the door. For more information, visit
