The Lindyfest

Lindyfest is an annual weekend workshop of classes, lectures, performances, and social dances. Lindyfest attracts people from across the country and around the world who are eager to experience the exciting dance and history of the swing era.

Lone Star Championships at Lindyfest is the largest and most dynamic Lindy event of its kind. “Where Epic Party Meets World Class Instruction.” This year, 2018, will be the 22nd anniversary of Lindyfest and the 11th installment of the Lone Star Championships. Jam-packed with workshops, competitions for all dance levels, superb performances, and tons of social dancing!


This year we’ve tweaked the structure of our pricing to allow you more choices and more opportunity to participate.

  • The base ticket this year is our Dance Pass. In addition to the dances and watching competitions, this pass allows you the option to purchase classes and/or compete.

  • There are two types of classes this year: Tracked Classes in which the instructors give you an 8-hour tailored learning experience; and Add-On Classes which allow you to choose your own learning adventure. The Tracked Classes and Add-On Classes do not overlap, so you can do as much or as little as you like.
