Social Events

Updated January 17, 2017

In addition to over 30 hours of dance workshops and four evening dances, the 2017 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!

Brunch

Sunday brunch is on your own.  For traditional American brunch fare, we recommend the hotel’s own restaurant, Maxwells.  For something a bit more special and “Seattle”, head to the International District (20 minute walke, 5 minutes by car) for dim sum.  Whevere you eat, grab a group of friends and have a morning feast before the afternoon workshops and dance.
