WHERE: Eagle Hangar | EAA Aviation Museum 3000 | Poberezny Rd, Oshkosh
Relive the excitement and glamour of the big band era at EAA’s September Swing, a 1940s-style hangar dance. Celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Women Air Force Service Pilots (WASPs)! Start the celebration off with delicious era-inspired hors d’oeuvres at the anti-rationing buffet and grab a signature drink from the bar. All veterans will be recognized at the beginning of the night, so make sure you show up early!
Take to the dance floor to show your swing dance skills or learn how with lessons from the professional dancers of Fred Astaire Dance Studios 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, Wisconsin, takes the stage at 8 p.m. 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 influential role that female pilots played in World War II.
Hors d’oeuvres and dance lessons included with price of admission. Wine, beer, and cocktails will be available for purchase all evening. Vintage wear is encouraged, but not required. Prizes will be awarded for best period attire and best dancers.
Military Veterans are welcomed with free admission. Do you know a WASP that would like to attend September Swing? Let us know! Contact Lori Allman at firstname.lastname@example.org or (920) 426-6126.
