If you’re a little bit country, or like to dance and perform, the annual Dodge Saddle Club Talent Show is the place for you.
Singers, musicians, vocals and more will be coming together on Saturday for the golden anniversary of the talent show at the Dodge auditorium. The show will be starting at 6 p.m., and rehearsals will be taking place between 2–4 p.m.
In honor of 50 years of tradition, the annual country western contest will include performances by both old and new faces. While the contest is mainly for new performers, this year’s contestants will be joined by a number of past contestants.
The show is open to all amateur singers and instrumental country-western acts. There is no fee to participate and those performing will not be required to pay an admission fee. For information about performing, call Amanda Lorenz at 701-260-7360.
Since its origin, the contest has remained an important tradition, and a vital part in raising funds for the Saddle Club arena. The contest helps the arena gather the necessary funds to host events such as the Fourth of July Rodeo, the Ranch Rodeo, and many other significant events.
After the contest guests are invited to join in on the fun at the dance, which is being held at the Saddle Club Arena, located east of Dodge. Tickets to the dance will be sold at $8 per adult, and $5 per student.
However, the fun does not stop there. The Dodge City Hall will be serving food from 4-9 p.m., sponsored by the Sunshine Club in coordination with the talent show. So put on your dancing shoes, grab a delicious Fleischkuchle at the city hall, and come join the festivities.
