Hootenanny 2019

A party, most generally one that is, well, chock full of hoot, with just a little bit of nanny. A celebratory event held in the southern United States and possibly featuring some of the following: home-brewed hooch, straw hat, people 'dipping' socially, banjo, air boat, shotgun, confederate flag. It tends to be wild, uninhibited and dionysian despite the socially conservative views of most of its participants.

What Is It?

Once a year we abandon our regular work and have outdoor fun. Previous years have included water skiing, jet skiing, outdoor grilling, catered food, ATV riding, and general hilarity.

Where is it?

That's where you come in. You get to pick the activity from a carefully curated list of options. For the past two years we've gone to Buena Vista Watersports Park. As great as it is, after two years an activity is always removed from the option list. Let's keep it fresh!


Meet the Options

Steak on the Lake

A short drive to Castaways on the River in Astor, FL. A flotilla of pontoon boats. A cooler of steaks, sausages, and other assorted foods and beverages. The chance to swim in Silver Glen Springs on a sunny day. A return to the location of the very first Hootenanny. This adventure promises to be less posh and more authentic, while promising the opportunity to get wet.

Cruise the river

Departing from Sanford, FL the St. Johns Rivership promises narrated cruises including your choice of chef-prepared entrée, live entertainment and endless hospitality aboard the only authentic sternwheeler sailing the St. Johns River. Measuring 105 feet from stem to stern, featuring ornate wrought iron railings and massive wooden paddle wheels, the five-story rivership also has enclosed decks that are climate controlled with air conditioning and heating. Unless things go horribly wrong, you will remain dry for the entirety of this adventure.
