Please join us for our 15th annual Contra Carnivale, an almost-all-contra dance event in beautiful San Luis Obispo over Martin Luther King weekend. Since it coincides with the beginning of the season, we'll decorate in a Mardi Gras theme and encourage "Mardi Gras festive" attire - especially for the Saturday evening dance! Bring your sequins and feathers, and we'll supply beads for everybody!

Centrally located near the coast mid-way between the San Francisco Bay area and Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo is a great place to visit. We'll fill your weekend with high-energy contra dancing, but recommend that you plan to spend Friday and/or Monday exploring & adventuring in the San Luis area on your own.
