History

The Lanesboro Barn Dance was begun in 1995 by Bob Bovee & Gail Heil. It is an old-fashioned square dance, typical of many of the dances held throughout the Midwest in the past, in barns, homes and community halls.

The dance is held at this year at the Sons of Norway Hall in Lanesboro and DreamAcres Farm, near Wykoff, MN at 8:00 PM, always with live music and calling (including teaching). Dancers need not have prior experience, nor do they need to come with a partner. Admission is $8.00.

2020 marks the twenty-sixth season of the Lanesboro Barn Dance. Here's the poster from the first dance.
