Alt Prom 2018

Winston-Salem’s 12th annual Alternative Prom will be held on May 12th, 2018, at the Old Salem Visitor’s Center, from 7pm to 11pm.

The event is open to any high school students in grades 9-12. Our theme is GLOW. Admission is free; a $5 suggested donation will help us make sure Alt Prom will continue to happen. Tickets are not required, but please register on our Eventbrite to help us estimate numbers. Please note that for security reasons, once each young person has entered the event, they cannot re-enter a second time.

Alt Prom will feature dancing (of course), entertainment by DJ Clash and mystery drag performers, professional photos, games and activities, food, and raffle prizes. Don’t miss it!
