MARCH 11th - 13th, 2016
The Event Directors of the “Texas Hoe-Down” would like to thank all of you that came out and helped make our 26th Anniversary of the “Texas Hoe-Down” the tremendous success that it was. We were packed all week-end with competitors and dance enthusiasts, our largest attendance ever.
We have big plans for the 2016 “Texas Hoe-Down.” We will once again be at the DFW Airport Marriott, South, in Ft. Worth. This is a wonderful facility and we have enjoyed being there for the past nine years. Their Staff is always very good to our dancers and there to help with any requests that we have. Be sure and come out and dance and visit with us.
If you are not familiar with competitions such as our’s, and you are a dance enthusiast, it is sure to make an impression. Once you have been a part of a dance competition, you’re sure to be hooked. After Jerry and I competed on a dance team at an event in Joplin, Mo. in the late 1980’s, I couldn’t wait to get home and organize such an experience for Texas. The “Texas Hoe-Down” was the first organized Country-Western Event of this type to be held in Texas, to our knowledge. We started this adventure in 1990…we’ve come a long way, Baby…
We promise that we will have the most exciting competitions ever and our Star-Studded Saturday Night Shows are always the very best.
We look forward to seeing you. Get your Event Registrations in and make your hotel reservations as soon as possible. See you at the “The Texas Hoe-Down.”
PLEASE NOTE: Country and Western Registration Closes Wednesday March 9 th at 5 pm.
