Sunday, April 8
Sundance Saloon

Don't miss this special night of celebration as we mark the 20th anniversary of Sundance Saloon! Twenty years ago we opened our doors in the back room of the Pleasuredome at 174 King Street, never imagining that Sundance Saloon would become a world-renowned institution in the LGBT community.

We'll have entertainment by the Sundance Bandits, Barbary Coast Cloggers, Vima Vice Squad, and Clogging Express, and a moment to honor the hundreds of volunteers, donors, and other contributors over the years. FREE ADMISSION!
