In the United States, there are several dozen teams of dancers. The teams located in the Midwest and Moutain States gather together every Memorial Day weekend to dance together and renew friendships. This annual gathering IS the Midwest Morris Ale!
This year, the Midwest Morris Ale is being held in the Metro Louisville area. Morris dancers will perform in the downtown area throughout the day on May 26, converging on the Harbor Lawn at approximately 3:30pm for a "mass dance" featuring all morris teams in attendance. The community is invited to come to the Harbor Lawn and watch the dancing.
