Five Acre School offers a full day of entertainment for children and adults at its 11th-annual Beat the Blues Barn Dance on Saturday, March 2, at the Big Barn Farm at 702 Kitchen Dick Road.

This year’s event kicks off with daytime activities and family festivities from 2-5 p.m. where children under 12 get in free and adults are $5 at the door. The rest of the event features live music and dancing from 5-11 p.m. Adults are $25 at the door or $20 in advance at beattheblues.brownpapertickets.com.

“Built upon a decade of good times and successful fundraising for education, this year’s Barn Dance is bigger and better than ever,” said Amber Tjemsland, chair of the Five Acre School Parent Service Organization.

Daytime activities include performances by Red Yarn, an Oregon-based family performer who combines folk songs and puppetry into enthusiastic shows, and Sound Waves, a multi-age student marimba group.

Several live bands are set to play starting at 5 p.m., such as The Sam Chase & The Untraditional, Gus Clark & The Least of His Problems and Crow Quill Night Owls with guest Devin Champlin.

The event also includes a silent auction and raffle packages where raffle tickets can be bought for $5 a piece to win big prizes, such as ferry tickets and a place to stay for four people in Victoria, a “Taste of the Peninsula” package with certificates to local foodie hot spots, and a fly-fishing float trip with Curtis Reed.

Proceeds from raffle ticket sales go toward the Five Acre School Lisa Inman Tuition Assistance Fund and the Special Equipment Fund. Raffle tickets can be bought at Five Acre School or from a Five Acre School Family.

Several local vendors, such as Alderwood Bistro, Pacific Pantry, and Kokopelli Grill will provide food while Harbinger Winery, Fathom and League, Agnew Grocery Store and Finn River Farm and Cidery offer drink options.

“A huge shout out to our featured sponsors for the Barn Dance including Sunny Farms, Best Friend Nutrition, Jim’s Pharmacy, Olympic Personal Growth Center and more,” Tjemsland said.

Other sponsors for the event include: Anomaly event Transport, Strait Slice Pizza, Tracy’s Insulation, Country Aire Natural Food Market, Westport Yachts, First Federal, Titan Builders LLC and Clallam Coworking (The Cow).
