This is a past event.

If you could redo your prom, what would it look like?

Relive the glory days of prom-posals and dress/tux shopping with this twist on traditional high school prom, but better—this time everyone is old enough to drink and no one has a curfew! Get ready for the Grown-Up Field Trip: Prom Night!

Dance the night away and experience a kid-free evening that includes DJ music, high school rom-com trivia, and even DIY sashes, crowns, corsages and boutonnieres. Once your look is complete, take your prom pose at our photo booth. We’ll even show you how to mend those prom-night broken hearts in our heart surgery student experience. 

To get maximum use out of your rental formal wear, the new 007 Science: Inventing the World of James Bond exhibition will also be available to add to your night.

Whether you work up the nerve to ask your crush to dance, or just hang by the punch bowl with your besties, it's sure to be a night to remember.

Every attendee must be 21 or older with valid ID.

Prom it forward! Bring a new or used celebratory dress or suit to donate to the students of Southside Occupational Academy and receive a free drink ticket. (Limit two tickets per guest.)
