An old fashioned 1930s Lost Catskill Farm Hoedown has been set for Saturday, July 27th, from 5 to 9 pm, at the Time and the Valleys Museum on State Route 55 in Grahamsville, Sullivan County.
Back in the 1930s, neighbors, family and friends shared good times socializing and dancing to live music during warm summer evenings. The Museum is inviting everyone to join with them to recreate those times at an old fashioned 1930s country hoedown.
Held rain or shine, attendees can enjoy square and round dancing to tunes by the Country Travelers Paul Lounsbury, Bob Hunt, Dave Trestyn, Bill Engle and dance caller Patty Legg. After working up an appetite, delicious food including appetizers, salad, beef brisket, chicken in wine sauce and eggplant rollatini will be provided by Neversink General Store, and entertainment in the form of a fun Pie Auction and tricky tray calling, right before a mouth-watering desert of pie and ice cream.
Throughout the evening, both the 1930s Lost Catskill Farm and Museum’s most recent exhibition: WOW Water on Water!: Watercolor Paintings of the Watersheds, will be open. A 50/50 silent auction of some of the paintings in the exhibition will be running during the Hoedown.
The Lost Catskill Farm Hoedown is way to help support the Museum’s educational programs and the expansion of the 1930s Lost Catskill Farm. All are invited and 1930s dress is welcome. Handicapped parking is available.
