The Big Event

With rotating themes and venues, along with a commitment to details, the Big Event is something you don't want to miss. These fully immersive productions bring members of the community together for an evening full of fun and surprises.

Guests last year found themselves entering a speakeasy inside a renovated Art Deco Bank, and were treated to live music, signature cocktails, games of chance, cigarette strollers, an ersatz horse race, and an unforgettable raffle utilizing the bank's period safety deposit boxes.

See below for information about this year's Big Event.
