Social Events

In addition to over 30 hours of dance workshops and four evening dances, the 2021 Emerald City Hoedown will feature a number of Social Events aimed at giving you the best hoedown experience possible.  We want to make sure you come away feeling not just that you have attended a great hoedown but that you have done so with great people in a great city… so you’ll want to come back again soon!  Most of our social events will take place in the Hospitality Suite, room 2721.

The following listing is for the events which had been planned for the 2020 Emerald City Hoedown.  We expect the 2022 hoedown schedule to follow this closely.
