Welcome to “Houston, We Have A Promenade”!

This is the website for Houston, We Have A Promenade, the 38th Annual Convention of the International Association of Gay Square Dance Clubs ( IGASDC), an LGBTQ* organization, being held July 2-4, 2021 in Houston, Texas.

We look forward to welcoming hundreds of LGBTQ* Square Dancers to the Hyatt Regency in Houston, TX over the July 4th weekend of 2021!

  • 1/13/2021: Survey Available!
    To help guide our response to the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve prepared a short Google Forms survey.

    The survey info will help us refine our convention plans, especially regarding alternatives to the planned in-person event currently scheduled for July 2-4, 2021 in Houston, TX.

    Current rate of $200 is now good through April 30, 2021! (Fun Badge Tour is $50, Non-Dancer rate is $100.)

  • 11/14/2020: We’ve received a number of questions asking when we’ll know a “go/no-go” date for Houston, We Have A Promenade.

    Please be assured that we are as anxious about COVID-19 safety as you, but we just don’t have sufficient information to make an informed decision…yet. 

    Truthfully, with so many variables in play, we don’t have a specific date in mind right this minute.

    However, we DO intend to set that date by the end of January 2021, when we will have a new Federal administration in place, and a more reliable set of data points.

  • 11/9/2020: Registration note: a full refund of all registration fees will be made if the convention is cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns.

    • Adding a COVID-19 page, which we’ll update as things develop (including bulletins here on the main page).
    • A much-requested Dining Near Hotel guide, showing walking distance from the hotel. (It’s under “Houston!”)
    • Updating the Hotel page with a link to the Hyatt Regency’s main website.

    • Splitting up the About/Info page a bit, to make things easier to find, including information about Our Committee, our convention logo, and a new Contact Us form.
