64th Annual Summer Square Dance Festival

& Salmon Barbecue

August 21-23, 2020

Western Dance Center

1901 N. Sullivan Rd., Spokane Valley WA


To Spokane Area Square and Round Dancers:


It is with sadness I have to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Salmon BBQ. I, and the WDA Board, have been hopeful we would be able to host this event, with modifications, to accommodate COVID-19 restrictions.  Our goal was to be able to host a stripped down version of the event which would have included a drive-thru distribution of the Salmon dinner.


However, because of the local and state restrictions in place, there is no practical way either the Salmon BBQ nor the Summer Festival will be able to occur this year.  Our out-of-town caller and cuer have been notified and released from their contracts. We are working to reschedule them to a later year. Individuals with preregistrations are being contacted directly.  Please contact me at with any questions you may have concerning this cancellation.


This is a difficult time for all of us and we all miss dancing and socializing with our square dance family. Rest assured, steps are already being taken to plan for the 2021 Salmon BBQ and Summer Festival. We truly appreciate the participation, dedication, and hard work provided by the entire square and round dance community throughout the area each and every year to ensure the success of this event.


As an organization, the WDA is dedicated to the safety of all our dancers. You are our family and every one of you is a valued member! As soon as we can safely and legally reopen, guidelines and resources will be in place to facilitate a clean, safe dance environment.


We look forward to a time when we can, once again, gather together in friendship and dance.


Yellowrocks to you all,


Stephen Scott
