We turned 21 on July 17th 2021!

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2021 event. Save the Date for July 16th for 2022.

Also a very special thank you to Sue Cooper,
a longtime volunteer and attendee, who
was the 2021 50/50 raffle winner.
At the event she won $9000+ and she DONATED it all back to the foundation.
Her generosity embodies the spirit of the 7 best hours of Summer
and what makes the event about the people, about all the people who come together to celebrate while fighting cancer.

he highlight of the evening was recognizing Deb Fuller, Jay Fuller and Jodie Murphy as the 2021 Never Be Defeated Awardees. Please take time to read their story and be inspired by their lives and commitment to one another and we continue to send them support as they fight and honor the life of Hope.



In addition to the Never Be Defeated Awardees, the heros of every Barndance are the volunteers. Our volunteers not only lend a hand by assisting with parking, at the entrance, pouring beer, setting up, cleaning up and other important event tasks, they also purcahse tickets and attend the event. We can’t thank our volunteers enough for their dedication and support.

After missing the 2020 event and in less than 70 days, we are so grateful that the 21st annual Barndance Under the Stars made a come back. A huge part of what made the event fun and successful were the live performances by ‘Janet & I’, Infinity and Libido Funk Circus. The weather helped make it a great night to sing and dance and make memories.

There are so many people to thank, so many sponsors/underwriters, organizations, and businesses. We were so glad to gather as a community Under the Stars and the over 1700 ticket holders hold a very special place in the Barndance history books! A heartfelt thanks for joining us in our mission to build awarness for cancer research, treatment and education. We are so proud to call Woodstock home and Emricson Park provides an unbelievable setting for our annual ‘Barn Raising’, and the partnership and support from the City, Parks & Rec, Police, Fire, and Public Works is unparalleled.

Together we Fight. Together we Celebrate and as always, please remember to GET CHECKED!

A special thank you to our talented event photography team lead by Janet Kay. Year after year, Janet donates her time and talents to photograph the event. This year credit also goes to photographers Patty Bell and Sam Ludwig.
