Put on Your Dancing Shoes and Get ready for Some Fun!!!

We at Blueberry never want the music to end… so last year, after Main Stage ended for the evening, we held a country music-inspired dance. We expected a few late-night revellers to show up and tap their toes – instead, we got a crowd of 500 who danced into the wee hours! Who knew everyone wanted to finish off their evenings dancing!

Because it was such a big hit, we are holding it again in 2018 – bigger and better than ever! So, on Friday night, pack your dancing shoes, line up a partner and head over to the indoor Stage where you will find the incredibly talented Calvin Vollrath & Country Swing all tuned up and ready to go.

Calvin is a natural talent on the fiddle. His accomplishments include the Grand North American Old Tyme Champion, he has received the Canadian Grand Masters Lifetime Achievement Award, started Camp Calvin, composed 5 fiddle tunes for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and has over 65 Albums… and yes, he will bring his Country Swing band to the Blueberry Bluegrass Festival this year to play the dance. Make it to the festival on Friday night to catch some great shows before dancing away what’s left of the evening.

If you need a break from dancing wander on over to the Hospitality Tent, order a cold beer, sit back and enjoy some high-calibre jamming going on under that canopy. Stay a while to pick a tune or just listen to the late night jammers before heading back to the dance. We don’t want you to go hungry, you’ll find a delicious snack at the late-night concession.

Try to get some sleep because we’re going to do it all again on Saturday… an even bigger day of entertainment and activities followed by Kayla Hotte and her Rodeo Pals country dance.
