Party like its 1899 at The Barnacle's 'Old Time Dance'

The Barnacle, Miami's oldest home still sitting in its original location

Kick up your heels and dance in the outdoor Micco Pavilion at The Barnacle Historic State Park in Coconut Grove on Sunday, May 22 from 6:30-10 p.m. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes and come learn to dance the traditional American way: Contras, Squares, Circles, and Waltzes. Instruction is included and beginners are welcome.

The Barnacle, built in 1891, is the oldest house in Miami in its original location. The home of Coconut Grove pioneer Ralph Middleton Munroe is now a Florida State Park and is located at 3485 Main Highway in downtown Coconut Grove, across from the Coconut Grove Playhouse. Please park on the street or in one of the parking lots around town, then stroll down the lane into the park for an evening of Old Time fun with music played by Keeping It Reel. Lou Dow will be on hand calling the steps. Dance like it’s 1891!

Gate opens at 6 p.m. Picnics welcome. The cost for the evening is $10 per person; children under 10 are free. For additional information contact 305-442-6866 or visit www.TheBarnacle.org.

The Barnacle Society, Inc. is a volunteer nonprofit, citizen-supported organization created to generate public awareness, education, and financial support for the preservation and maintenance of The Barnacle Historic State Park.
