12:00p - 12:40p Legion of Honor You'll find us by the fountain in front (if not in it).
1:00p - 1:50p Golden Gate Park, Music Concourse Another fountain, this time between DeYoung and the natural science museum
2:00p - 3:00p Golden Gate Park, Strybing Arboretum From the concourse, walk south past the bandshell, cross the road, and....what's this?  Yet another fountain?

The local morris community holds its own free-for-all

MemoriAle, Adelphian Arts Center, 2167 Central Ave, Alamedamap.gif (1249 bytes)

A celebration with other Berkeley Morris and other teams around the area as we salute and remember Terry O'Neal.
4-11-99 The MemoriAle celebration takes to the streets, much to the surprise of an suspecting public.
05-01-99 5:30a May Day morning, Baylands Nature Preserve, Palo Alto map.gif (1249 bytes) Come help us dance up the Sun on MayDay morning (we do it every year, and it always works - good thing, too!) and celebrate.  It's not so much that we believe the sun won't come up on Mayday without some dancing, it's just that if we didn't dance, and the sun didn't come up, we'd feel really bad.

If you haven't been out to see the sunrise celebration, give it a try. It's very beautiful, and while the sleepiness lasts only as long as it takes you to get there, the happy glow lasts all day! 

We continue throughout the day, bringing Morris cheer all around town.

Late afternoon - pickup dance and Morris BBQ in Palo Alto

Late afternoon - pickup dance and Morris BBQ in Stanford's traditional spring faire is our favorite faire, dancing with Mayfield Morris, Seabright Morris, and others. You'll find us over at the bookstore. (Hey wait a minute! Is that another fountain?)

Lark in the Morning Gala
The Cannery
, San Francisco 

A cornucopia of folk fun and frivolity, members of our team will join with other members of the Bay Area Country Dance Society.  Look for the Deer Creek logo on our tee shirts - if you find one, you get to buy us a drink!

One day is just never enough for Lark.

05-23-99 4p-7p Pacific Grove, Monterey (private party) What would top off the high elegance of a High Tea ceremony in Monterey?   Why morris dancing, of course.

Seattle Folklife Festival

The biggest free folk festival in the United States, and we're there!  Well, some of us are...

I have never seen so much good dance, music, song, arts, crafts, and food.


11a - 2p Whitsun Ale, Santa Cruz

It's off to Lighthouse Field along the beach for dancing with Seabright Morris and Sword in the home venue.  We often get into lots of trouble in downtown Santa Cruz, the wineries near Felton.  And Boulder Creek may never be the same.

It's our 3rd local summer dance-out for the local community, continuing our annual tradition for the folks at home.

The Portland Ale
The Oregon Tr'ale
The Habituale, Portland Oregon

Yes, Portland Ale does sound like a drink, and some of our team members will no doubt be doing that too, along with some of the best dancing in the Pacific Northwest, hosted by the Bridgetown Morris Men.

Not The California Ale, San Diego

Southern California!  Even the sound of it brings forth images of danger.  We brave the wastelands in search of .... dancing.  Hosted by Morton Bay Fig Morris.
