Basic directions: 

From downtown Mountain City, TN (intersection of Main St and Church St / Food Country USA) take N. Church Street north for about 3.3 miles (towards Laurel Bloomery / Damascus). The name of the road will change to Divide Road and The Appalachian Folk School will be on the right. Look for the Contra Dance signs.

Park out front, walk past all the cabins and bunkhouses, picnic shelters, etc. and see the beautiful old barn in the back. The incredible dance pavilion is accessed by going through the barn.

What to Bring:

  • A reusable cup / water bottle
  • Food: Plenty of food to keep you going for 12 hours (protein has been shown to help keep you going)! Light snacks will be provided - feel free to bring snacks to share. If you’re staying the night, there is a kitchen/fridge available to use, just label your food. There are also several restaurants a short drive away in Mountain City.
  • For those staying the night: bedding (sleeping bag, pillows) and towels (nice mattresses in the bunkhouses and showers available)
  • Clothing - layers. It is fall up here at 2500 ft. Expect mid-high 60’s during the day (perfect for dancing), but the temperature could drop below 50 overnight.
  • A flashlight for after the dance
