Social Events

In addition to over 40 hours of dance workshops and four evening dances, the 2019 Emerald City Hoedown/26th annual IAGLCWDC Conventionwill 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!
