JAMESTOWN – The ninth annual Father/Daughter Dance returns April 22 a year after the event was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m very excited about it,” said Linda Brown, event committee member. “It’s going to be like new again with memories.”

The Father/Daughter Dance began with only about 100 attendees, but the event grew to more than 400 attendees in 2020.

“We have never had a year where we didn’t get as many as the year before,” Brown said.

The Father/Daughter Dance, which is sponsored by St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Jamestown, runs from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at Jamestown High School. The grand march begins at 6:15 p.m.


Brown encouraged people to purchase tickets in advance so a proper number of corsages and refreshments will be available. Proceeds from the event are donated to the American Cancer Society.

“Even if you buy a ticket and don’t attend, it is money that is donated to the American Cancer Society,” she said. “It is well-spent money.”

Tickets per couple can be purchased in advance for $25 by Wednesday, April 20, or at the door for $40. The cost for extra girls is $5 each. A spectator charge of $1 will be applied for anyone ages 10 and older.

Advanced tickets can be purchased at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church or Neighborhood Grocery. There are no age restrictions on who can attend, Brown said.
