Upcoming Events

The Santa Clara Valley, at the south end of San Francisco Bay, is the home of many square dance clubs and features special square dance events almost every weekend. Our calendar lists special evening/one-day events in and near our area, along with selected longer events elsewhere that are likely to be of interest to our members.

Most of the events listed here are intended for people who already have some experience with square dancing. For information about upcoming introductory sessions and classes, visit our intro page.

Note: Although most regular square dance activities were suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, some clubs continued by offering "virtual dancing" using Zoom (for more information about this see the virtual dancing page), and most clubs have now started in-person dancing again. In-person dance sessions may be at a different location or on a different schedule than before the pandemic (and in some cases NOT necessarily what is listed here as their regular location/schedule), and a few are "by invitation only". Most clubs in this area are also limiting participation to "fully-vaccinated" dancers. For details of current arrangements please contact the particular club.
