Sundance Saloon Grand Reopening Sunday, August 8 • 5:00 – 10:30 pm
Woo hoo! Sundance Saloon will reopen on Sunday, August 8, with a party to remember! We'll continue on Thursdays and Sundays after that, starting each event with lessons. Admission will be free the entire month of August, partially underwritten by generous donors. On reopening night we will also have a table set up to honor folks we've lost in the past 18 months, where you can leave an item to memorialize someone.
Vaccination: Attendees must be fully-vaccinated against Covid-19 (at least 14 days after the final dose). More details here, including instructions on sending your documentation to us in advance.
Masks: Bring a mask. Per the City and County of San Francisco, masks will be required for everyone.
Hand sanitizer: Required upon entry.
Ventilation: The main ballroom will have the equivalent of at least 12-16 complete air exchanges per hour, with open doors, exhaust fans in the roof, and several industrial-sized HEPA-13 air purifiers.
Covid attestation: If you have any symptoms, recent exposure or positive test, you should stay home.
Sundance Saloon is a community effort, dependent on lots of people chipping in a little bit. We are always looking for more help, and this will be true more than ever post-pandemic. A number of former volunteers have moved away or moved on to other pursuits. If you have not volunteered in the past, this is a great time to think about stepping in. We have lots of shifts remaining to be filled in August.
Our needs at Sundance Saloon include set-up, front door, and coat-check. Shifts are generally one hour. No experience necessary.
Are we through with face masks? We don't think so.
Get your very own Sundance Saloon face mask while they last! There are five different designs to choose from. These are amazingly comfortable cloth masks with adjustable elastic ear loops and contoured nasal bridge; machine-washable (gentle cycle).
The masks are $15 each. All proceeds benefit the Sundance Association. Order online, or buy at Sundance Saloon.
Sundance Stompede May 25-29, 2022
The Sundance Stompede, our huge four-day country-western dance weekend, originally scheduled for September 3-6, 2020, and then postponed to May 27-30, 2021, is now scheduled for May 25-29, 2022, Memorial Day weekend. The 2022 Stompede will still host the annual convention of the International Association of Gay/Lesbian Country-Western Dance Clubs (IAGLCWDC).
Advance registration and hotel reservations are OPEN! Early registration is $149 for the entire weekend. The host hotel is again the Golden Gateway Holiday Inn on Van Ness Avenue. See you there! We can't wait!
Thanks to the support of our community, we ended 2020 in the black. And our Give Out Day earnings in both 2020 and 2021 have given us a tremendous boost. But the need for financial support is never-ending. There are many ways to help us!
Donate to our COVID-19 recovery fund, created specifically to help counter our losses from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
