60th Anniversary Hoedown

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our 60th Anniversary Hoedown!

For one night only, the Boulder Elks Lodge will transform into the rootin'-est, tootin'-est saloon in all the West.

Join us for a night of high-falutin', heel-stompin' hoedown music by the Boulder Phil under the baton of Michael Butterman. The orchestra will perform Ferde Grofe's On the Trail from Grand Canyon Suite, John Williams' The Cowboys Overture and Aaron Copland's Hoedown featuring the Boulder Ballet.

This "cowboy formal" event will feature a game room with pool and blackjack, a cowboy sing-a-long hosted by Liz Masterson, and a farm-to-table supper.

The evening will be hosted by emcee and square dance caller, Chris Kermiet.

With a live auction, dancing to Liz Masterson and her band, and much more, this event is fixin' to be a can't-miss barn-burner!
