2019 Abbots Bromliad Antler Dance
Monday, September 2, 2019 | 11:30 am to 2 pm
Joaquin Miller Park, 3594 Sanborn Dr, Oakland
The Bromliad takes place in a beautiful glade in Pinewood Picnic Area in Joaquin Miller Park–one of the East Bay’s most picturesque park locations. Picnickers can arrive any time after 11:30 am.
Bring the kids, a blanket and your favorite picnic and beverages. There will be music and Morris dancing (teams cordially invited) as well as called group dancing (callers and players cordially invited, too). Then at 1:00 PM, they’ll set up for the largest Abbots Bromley serpentine ever.
The fun continues until 3:00 PM as there will be English, Morris, and other dancing throughout the day as the spirit moves you. Join us and be a part of dance history.
Note on the location: Sanborn Drive is a loop which meets Joaquin Miller Road twice. Use the southern-most entrance at the Woodminster Theater sign. There is plenty of free parking on Joaquin Miller Road, then just follow the path down the hill to the meadow.
