Potato Dance World Championship

Presented by First Americans Museum at First Americans Museum

Feb 12 2022
Potato Dance World Championship

Grab your sweetie and compete for global glory in this not-so-traditional dance. You’ll position a potato between your forehead and that of your beloved and dance to the tunes of DJ Nymasis (Kiowa). The last pair standing with the potato aloft and intact wins. The victorious duo will earn a $250 shopping spree at FAMstore and bragging rights for the next year. This event features an opportunity for everyone to dance and performance from award-winning Fancy Dancer Boye Ladd (Ho-Chunk).
