Battle of the Big Bands

Saturday, May 27, 7:00pm–1:00am

Doors to the hangar deck open at 7:00pm

Join us during Fleet Week for an epic battle of the big bands on Intrepid’s flight deck! This special event will conjure the music, dancing and style of the World War II era, with three of New York City’s best big bands going head-to-head.  Swing dance performances, a dance contest, swing DJs and free beginner swing dance lessons will keep the dance floor moving until midnight. A vintage fashion show and contest will add to the flair. Don’t miss this one-night-only event, presented by the Intrepid Museum in partnership with Prohibition Productions.

For adults ages 21 and over. Cash bar and snacks for purchase.
