Prom 2024

The Class of 2025 Junior representatives are excited to announce this year’s prom: The Roaring Twenties on the Rapids. Prom will take place this Saturday, April 13th, 2024 from 8 pm-11 pm at the Grand Rapids Public Museum (272 Pearl Street NW Grand Rapids, MI 49504). 

Prom tickets are $40. Last chance to purchase tickets is during all three lunches this Friday, April 12. Tickets will NOT be sold on the day of prom at the museum. You need to show your student ID at lunch to purchase a ticket. 

Additional details about prom this year:

  • The Grand Rapids Public Museum has a lot to offer as a prom venue. An area for dancing, multiple levels with exhibits to explore, and two planetarium shows. Unfortunately, the carousel will not be available at prom because that part of the museum is undergoing renovations. 
  • Dinner will not be provided at prom, so be sure to eat a meal before you arrive. There will be some desserts and refreshments provided.
  • Prom will include a DJ and dance floor on the main level, as well as a photo booth for an opportunity to capture some fun memories at prom.
  • Photographer Larry Wood will be taking more formal photos inside on the main floor.  He will upload pictures to Facebook and try to tag you in them so you can print them yourself for free!  Be sure to become FB friends with Larry Wood so you can see and download your pictures!  (By getting your picture taken by Larry Wood, you are agreeing to have your photo posted online).
  • There will be a coat rack at the entrance to hang your coat, but not a coat check. BCHS is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Large purses and bags will not be allowed. Items such as purses and coats are searched at the door. Keep track of your valuables and leave unnecessary items at home! 
  • Parking is included in the ticket price but is limited to roughly the first 200 cars in the Museum Parking Lot. If you get a spot in the Museum parking ramp, then before you leave be sure to get a parking validation ticket from a chaperone near the exit for your parking to be paid for.  Otherwise, you might have to pay when you exit. Other parking lots can be used in downtown Grand Rapids near the museum, but those parking fees will not be validated. Street parking at any parking meter is always free on Saturdays in Grand Rapids (double-check by reading the meter). With limited parking spaces in the museum lot, try to carpool with others.
  • No alcohol, no inappropriate dancing, and no re-entry to Prom if you leave (doors close at 9:30 pm).
