Scares ‘n Squares 2020


Scares ‘N Squares is back for 2020! We are able to present this festival once again in Multnomah Village, a great neighborhood in Southwest Portland with lots of shops and restaurants.

We’ll be dancing October 23-25, at the Multnomah Arts Center, 7688 SW Capitol Highway, Portland, Oregon 97219.

Our three legendary callers will be…

  • Anne Uebelacker. Anne’s been calling for over 30 years. She was a pioneering woman square dance caller and has quite a following of devoted dancers. Come see what all the excitement is about!
  • Bill Eyler. Bill has been calling for almost 40 years. He called for many years out of Albuquerque and relocated to Palm Springs when he retired from his day job. Bill loves to bring diverse people together through dance, and he may even throw a little line dancing into the mix.
  • Gary Monday. Caller extraordinaire for more than 30 years, Gary calls all over the US and internationally. His up-tempo, friendly style keeps dancers on their toes and grinning from ear to ear.

The weekend will feature 3 hours of dancing on Friday night, dancing all day Saturday and a dance party Saturday night, and a half-day of dancing on Sunday. The exact schedule will be posted closer to the event, as we get a handle on registrations. We will likely dance all levels from Basic through C-2.
