Gospel Night
A Harvest Production Event

Hankering to hear – and lift your voice in – some good old down-home gospel hymns? Come gather with us in the old packing shed and enjoy music, refreshments, and fellowship as the Riley family – along with a slew of guest singers and musicians – lead the assembly in traditional gospel music. Admission is free; a love offering will be taken. Requests are welcome, so dust off your old hymnals and tote 'em along! 

Gospel Nights are the third Friday of each month. Gospel sing starts at 7:00 p.m

  Hometown Jamboree -   at 6PM

Riley's at Los Rios Rancho puts on an old-time music variety show, just like those great old radio and t.v. shows of the 40s and 50s. There’s one difference — we throw in a hearty family-style dinner to boot!

At the Hometown Jamboree, families can tuck into a tasty meal and enjoy a hand-clappin’, knee-slappin’, toe-tappin’ good time as Riley’s Mountaineers and special guest performers pick, fiddle and sing their favorite oldtime bluegrass, western, and gospel tunes, as well as a few surprises along the way.

Guest musicians are always welcome to tote along an instrument or two and join in the freewheeling jam after the show. You never know who’ll turn up, or what you’ll hear next.

Come on up for some chicken and pickin’! At our reasonable adult ($20) and kid ($10 ) prices, it’s the best meal – and deal – around. Dinner  at 6PM.  Show following.   Here are the dates:

Apple Butter Festival 

 Pioneer families made a custom of gathering together in late fall to cook up apple butter from the last apples of the season. It was a practical way to preserve the apples throughout the year and a pleasurable way to preserve community spirit.

Our annual Thanksgiving weekend Apple Butter Festival celebrates this fine old tradition, and we invite families to come up and share in it. We’ll have a hands-on demonstration of apple butter making the old-time (and slow!) way - outdoors in a big copper kettle. Come learn how to “start the snitz” and “add the money”, plus enjoy pioneer crafts and games, music, carriage rides, and lots more.

At day’s end on Saturday we'll cap off the evening just like our ancestors did - with a good old-fashioned hoedown, featuring music by Riley's Mountaineers.

Admission to the Festival is free; there are small fees for some activities. Apple Butter Hoedown admission includes the pumpkin stew, served up in large Cinderella pumpkins.

You and your family will arrive to appetizers & hot cider and see the splendor of our barn all decked out in her Christmas finest.

Contra Dance
A Harvest Production Event

It's a mixture of square dancing and the Virgina Reel. People dance in long lines, couples facing couples across the set. Beginners should come in at 6:30 for basic instruction.

Dennis Riley calls the figures to some of the best New England style dance music you'll ever hear - on C.D. Most of the dances include a walk-thru, so don't be afraid - it's easy. Young children will find this style of dancing a little too advanced so you might want to find a baby-sitter for them. There are lots of teens and college students - along with parents. 

Tickets are sold at the door or you can call Sharon Riley for advance tickets.

Contar Dances are the forth Friday of each month.   Jan-Nov   $10.00 per person.
Enrolled college students: $7.
