Bon Temps Second Saturday Dance

The Most Fun You'll Find This Side of the Bayou!

Monthly dances of the Bon Temps Social Club of San Diego feature Louisiana-style live music with a dance lesson for beginners before the dance. They are usually held on the second Saturday evening of the month at the War Memorial Building in San Diego’s beautiful Balboa Park. The free-with-admission dance lesson begins at 6:20 p.m., and the open dancing to live music is 7:00 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. The philosophy of the club is “If you’re smiling you’re doing it right” — which is another way of saying everyone at any age or skill level is welcome at our dances.
