In celebration of country life, Malabar Farm continues the tradition that Louis Bromfield started by hosting country barn dances in the main timber frame barn at Malabar Farm. A total of six (6) barn dances are scheduled April through October.

ALL dances are open to the public. Beginner and veteran dancers are welcome and encouraged to attend. Enjoy live music and square-dance calling provided by the Back Porch Swing Band. This group has pleased hundreds of dancers for many years with their down-home style and patience with beginner dancers.Food and refreshments available at dance.
