Relive the excitement and glamour of the big band era at EAA's September Swing, a 1940s-style hangar dance. Start your nostalgic celebration with delicious era-inspired hors d’oeuvres at the anti-rationing buffet and grab one of our featured signature drinks from the bar.
Take to the dance floor to show your swing dance skills or learn how with lessons from our professional dance instructors from Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Appleton, from 7:30-8 p.m. Then showcase your new moves and dance the night away with your sweetheart when Ladies Must Swing, an all-female, 19-piece jazz band from Madison, takes the stage at 8 p.m.
Pose for a photo with WWII vehicles or check out the memorabilia on display. Purchase a commemorative dog tag from our friends at All-Star Warbirds Company. You’ll be surrounded by an authentic collection of World War II airplanes, vehicles, and artifacts in our extravagant Eagle Hangar. It will truly be a celebration of the end of an era! Vintage wear is encouraged, but not required. Prizes will be awarded for best period attire and best dancers.
Admission is $40 per single and $75 per couple and includes hors d’oeuvres and dance lessons. Wine, beer, and cocktails will be available for purchase all evening.
Discounted group rates are available. Please contact EAA Events for more information.
