Last year in August more than 500 people from Gainesville and surrounding communities converged on Bo Diddley Plaza in downtown Gainesville for an evening of live music, dancing, food, and wellness. The inaugural event, UF HealthStreet’s Night of Dance, was a celebration promoting community, diversity, health research and the arts.

Night of Dance won the hearts of the Gainesville community and its many local businesses and organizations in 2016, and this year it will return to Bo Diddley Plaza on October 22nd. A multitude of local wellness organizations, dance instructors and performers, as well as food trucks and food vendors will be participating in the event, providing music, dance instruction, delicious food and a number of free health and wellness resources and services to community members.

Night of Dance is free to the public and open to everyone, but we greatly appreciate donations, including clothing and toiletry items!

Please join us at Bo Diddley Plaza on October 22nd from 4-7pm, and be sure to visit our official Facebook event post for more information, including a full program of participating vendors!

If you are interested in being a vendor, a sponsor, participating as a performer, or would like more information, please call us at (352) 294 4880.
