Special Events

The Berea Festival Dancers host several great local events each year, and we also travel to amazing places to present performances and workshops in our style of traditional dance. Read on to find out more!

Apple Butter:
We make apple butter every October the old way, outside in a copper kettle over an open fire. We can’t sell it, of course – the health department would have a fit – but we can make some available to you in exchange for a suggested donation to the group!

The Spring Mountain Folk Festival:
Held each spring since the 1930’s, this event is one that our local dancers and those who come from out of town look forward to with great anticipation.

Valentine Ball
Every year, on the Saturday closest to Valentines Day, we sponsor a ball in the English Country Dance tradition, complete with fancy dresses, delicious hors d’oevres, fantastic live music, and a ballroom decorated thematically from floor to ceiling.
