Be part of the fun of Country Dancers of Rochester (CDR) 34th annual Thanksgiving Festival featuring Contra, English, Waltzing, and Grid Squares to live music.

Peregrine Road, the highly sought-after duo of Rachel Bell of Shinglehouse, PA and Karen Axelrod of Northampton, MA, will be our second band. Rebecca McCallum, Eileen Kalfass and Jane Knoeck will also be playing for a contra session. Callers Susan Kevra of Nashville, TN and Sarah VanNorstrand of Syracuse, Casey Carr of Ithaca and Chuck Abell of Rochester will lead the dances.
Musicians from Golden Link Folk Singing Society will lead a sing-along session, concentrating on Erie Canal Songs to celebrate the 200th anniversary of "Clinton's Ditch."
There will also be a special English Country Dance called by Sarah VanNorstrand on Sunday featuring Old World Charm School.
Admission is discounted with a wristband from the Thanksgiving Festival.
