About Us

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.

Our Services

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.

Everyone welcome

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).

Dress Appropriately

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).


Proceeds will go to maintain this site
