CFCD Event Schedule

All are invited. Wear cool clothing and soft-soled or leather-soled shoes. We dance on wooden floors, so be sure the soles of your shoes are clean and without nails, etc. Don't wear shoes that stop you from sliding and pivoting. No alcohol.

The Cape Fear Contra Dancers meet 7:30 to 9:30 PM on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings of each month. These dances are held at the 5th Avenue United Methodist Church in historic downtown Wilmington.   We ask for a donation of $5.00.

We also hold dances one Saturday evening of each month, September-November and January-May, from 7:30 to 11:00 PM. These dances are held at the at various locations -- see the schedule below.

We encourage dancers to pay $10 for a one-year membership. Your membership helps to defray the expenses of our Saturday dances not covered by donations at the door.
