This year marks the 20th anniversary of this extraordinary annual LGBT+ gala benefit country-western dance, the largest event of its kind anywhere! Country-western dancing in two rooms of the gorgeous Regency Center, with hundreds of cowfolks from all over the country and beyond. Exhibition dance performances and plenty of entertainment for non-dancers too. Plus, fundraising with silent auction and raffle to benefit the AIDS Emergency Fund, Center for Immigrant Protection, and Sundance Association for Country-Western Dancing.
This year’s event features guest star TY HERNDON, Grammy-nominated country recording artist with 20 Billboard-charted singles and three #1 hits. In 2014, Ty Herndon became the first major male country artist to publicly come out as gay. House On Fire, his latest and most ambitious album to date, was released in November, 2016.
Hoedown 2017 is the centerpiece event of the four-day SUNDANCE STOMPEDE, an LGBT+ country-western dance weekend with four consecutive nights of dance events and three days of dance workshops, October 19–22, 2017.
