This festival brings some of the best talent to the state and showcases many types of dance and music, with performances, dance lessons and an emphasis on participation.
A public square dance kicks off the festival Friday evening, and throughout the weekend are opportunities for beginners to learn easy folk dances, waltz, salsa, Zumba and more. The event also features a vendor area with handmade items and arts and crafts from other countries.
