The Barnard Street Dance was a beloved community event in Barnard that ran 21 years from 1994 to 2015. Former General Store owners Carolyn Dicicco and Kim Furlong organized early dances, which featured a line-up of local musicians with the popular "Jeanne and The High-tops" headlining. The party took over the porch and street in front of the Barnard General Store, and people of all ages enjoyed the lively town center, beautiful Silver Lake, and music from talented local musicians.

The event came to an end in 2015, due to safety concerns following an accident during the event. In 2022, we brought it back with the help of Barnard Rec, but instead to the parking lot in front of the Barnard Town Hall which offers plenty of level space, paved and grassy, to dance worry-free.
