Summer’s Best Party in Edmonton, Canada!
It’s time to party to incredible live swing music!
This year’s festival is happening June 16, 17, 18 2017
What’s the best way to spend the longest night of summer? A weekend-long swing dance bash! Hosted and organized by Sugar Swing, the festival has brought dancers together from across Canada and the United States, and combines live music, community, and lots of dancing into one incredible weekend. Our superb, sprung-floor, centrally-located Sugar Foot Ballroom provides the venue, and events are open to people of all ages. At Summer Solstice Swing Dance Festival , we aim to create an amazing experience of swing music and dancing.
Registration is open May 7! Also RSVP on the Facebook event page to get important updates and announcements.
What to Expect
This event is like a dance exchange, with the focus on live music, socializing and dancing. And while there’s plenty of time for social dancing (yay late nights!), we include other non-dance activities so attendees can just hang out, have fun, and connect with each other. For out-of-towners, this is a fantastic way to enjoy Edmonton’s famous hospitality and explore an underrated city. For locals, it’s a nonstop party weekend where they can meet dancers from around the continent. Together we enjoy a weekend of incredible live music and community.
Features of the Summer Solstice Swing Dance Festival include: hand-picked, out-of-town musicians, a hot tub, an outdoor dance floor, live music BBQ, late-night eats, exploring Old Strathcona, fun contests, and dancing till sunrise both nights.
