About Full Moon Barn Dance

Leeann Atherton

Hosted by the lovely and talented Leeann Atherton, an Austin musician and mother. Feel free to contact her with any questions.

This community event celebrates the fine, original music of Austin and the world beyond; with friends, dancing, and a potluck dinner to share. The special guest artists and the full moon make for a howlin' good time.

Barn Dances occur on occasional full moon Sundays and some holiday Sundays (SXSW, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother's & Father's Day). Each Barn Dance has its own unique personality and YOU are a crucial part in creating the magic..

Please bring $10.00-$20.00 per person cash donation (please no large bills) and potluck to share such as meat and vegetables for the grill, and/or a covered prepared dish and beverages. BYO everything to share! The Bar-B-Que pits are often fired and smokin', professional chefs make sure it’s all good!

This wonderful event provides paid and volunteer professional musicians, pro sound system & crew, Porta-Potty rental and removal, prep and clean up crews, lavish potluck, cooks at the grill, ice chests and ice, disposable plates & silverware AND a loving venue in beautiful South Austin. Please recycle and consider bringing your own reusable plates and utensils. Let's get greener!

Guest List? There is no guest list except for pre-arranged volunteer musicians and cooks, pre-arranged volunteer event prep and clean-up crew members. Please volunteer for our next event!

Can't afford to make a cash donation? Then PLEASE VOLUNTEER!!! Volunteers are needed Saturday at noonish to help set up, Sunday night and Monday daytime to pick up, get trash and recycling to the street and tables stored away.
