This looks interesting, over in Pescadero: September 17th Work Day and Barn Dance - Pie Ranch
On the third Saturday of each month, Pie Ranch hosts a Community Work Day, potluck dinner, and rollicking barn dance in the roadside barn. All are welcome; come lend a hand in the fields while you work alongside other volunteers and farmers. Celebrate the spirit of community at this monthly ritual of working together on the ranch, sharing locally grown food, and then spinning, laughing and dosey-doing together into the night.
The work party starts at 2pm.
We offer an optional farm tour at 4pm that begins at the upper slice toolshed ($5/person).
Then join in the potluck at 6pm
and dancing at 7pm until about 10pm.
The dance is $7-20 (sliding scale) to compensate Pie Ranch, the County Line Pickers (featuring Jim Davies, bass; Joni Davies, guitar; Josh Lane, mandolin; Ken Clarkson, banjo; Jon Young & Nancy Vail, fiddles) and caller, Andy Wilson.
Children under 12 free accompanied by their parents; if you bring a large group of youngsters (7 or more) we request prior notification and a sliding fee of $5-10 per child. Workday participants pay a discounted rate of $5-15, so come on down and hoe before you hoe down! If your group consists of more than 7, please let us know in advance so that we can be sure of ample space in the barn!
Here are some videos of the dance from the Andy Wilson Caller site:
