    We're elated to host our wonderland experience at the historic Crystal Ballroom. Being a 21+ event, we will not have the center divider on the dance floor. This will allow a natural flow in between all the magic. Also, we decided to not have a VIP section so we can all be connected on the same level.

Every time you enter this majestic ballroom, let your imagination sense the tremors resonating from a century's worth of gatherings, and realize that you are joining a thriving, generations-long procession of show-goers. Welcome!

Tickets will not be placed on sale until binder is received. Promoter is responsible for all ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC fees.
