Turner Hall of Monroe

Sunday Afternoon Dances

Preserved from a bygone era, the spacious hard maple dance floor in Turner Hall's Grand Hall is a dancer's dream! Whether you enjoy an Old World polka or schottisch, ballroom dancing or rock'n'roll, this is one of the finest and largest dance floors in the area.

Most Sunday afternoons from 1 - 5 pm, enjoy dancing with live music performed by some of the most popular old-time bands in Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota.

Admission to the Sunday afternoon dances is $10 per person unless noted otherwise. Freshly-made popcorn and beverages are available at an additional cost.
