“The Beat the Blues” Barn Dance returns for all-ages, all-the-time from 2-11 p.m. Saturday, March 1, at The Big Barn Farm, 702 Kitchen Dick Road.

As per tradition, the event runs in two parts with the family afternoon going from 2-6 p.m. that features Zumba, storytelling, contra dancing, crafts, outside play zone, photo booth, face painting and community drumming.

The evening entertainment opens with the Old Sidekicks at 6 p.m. and Joy in Mudville at 7:30 p.m.

All ticket proceeds help the school with student scholarships and special equipment.

Entry at the door is $5 before 6 p.m. and $15 after, and $15 all day with children under 12 free.
 
There also will be a silent auction and raffle.

Food and beverages will be available including plenty of local offerings from Nash’s Organic Produce, Alder Wood Bistro, Crave Cart, Gastropub, Olympic Cellars, Bedford’s and Olympic Springs.

Organizers are aiming for a zero waste event by composting waste.
