What is the Winter Dance Party?

Held each year in February since 1979, the Surf Ballroom’s Winter Dance Party is a celebration of the lives and legacies of three of rock and roll’s brightest stars, Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson.

Thousands of Rock ‘n Roll fans from across the nation and world have made the pilgrimage to Clear Lake, Iowa to remember, reflect and celebrate during this annual festival. Join us for 4 great days and nights of rock ‘n roll music and memories!
