Welcome to Rosetown Ramblers!

The Rosetown Ramblers is a square dance club for gays and lesbians in Portland, Oregon. We dance the Mainstream and Plus levels and have been active in Portland since 1983. We are a member of the International Association of Gay Square Dance Clubs (IAGSDC), and hosted the IAGSDC International Convention in 1987 (Explode the Rose) and 1998 (Weave the Rose). We are open to all square dancers, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, ethnic background, or sexual orientation.
