Free Swing Dancing since 1996
The longest-running swing dance venue in the Bay Area
Golden Gate Park, along JFK Drive near the De Young Museum. You can enter the park at 8th or 10th Avenue on Fulton St
Every Sunday, weather permitting
11 am - 2 pm
Lindy in the Park is a free swing dance party (with lesson) that takes place every Sunday in Golden Gate Park. Founded by a couple of Lindy Hoppers looking for a cool place to dance way back in the 90's, Lindy in the Park celebrates its 19th year as the Bay Area's longest-running social swing dance venue, welcoming folks of all levels and ages. Celebrating a birthday or visiting from out of town? Come up to the DJ booth and let us know -- we'll celebrate with a birthday/out of towner jam.
We play the music. And you bring your happy feet and smiles (and maybe a water bottle or towel).
We play classic swing, jazz, rockabilly, blues & more! And at the end of the day, maybe even a few surprises.
We welcome dancers of all levels and ages. Please do observe standard accepted communication protocols, e.g. "May I?", "Thank you", etc.
Free lesson takes place at 12 noon. No partner required (we will ask you to rotate partners).
Please dress appropriately, both for societal expectations and the weather. Wear shoes that allow you to dance on asphalt (consult with your physician if you have concerns).
