Come to the Blue Mountains in Pendleton, Oregon, in August of 2014 for the 13th USAWest Square Dance Convention!
We are pleased to be hosting the 2014 USAWest convention in Pendleton, Oregon, a port city on the Columbia River in Eastern Oregon, returning to the city that hosted us so well in 2008.
USAWest is a square dance convention in the western United States, organized to provide an intermediate experience somewhere between local state festivals and the National Square Dance Convention®. It encompasses 13 western states. USAWest conventions are not held in years when the NSDC is in the west. For more information about the USAWest concept and past conventions, please see the official web site of the USAWest Policy Board, www.usawest.net, or on the board's Facebook page.
