Carrboro “Back to the Future” Adult Prom Benefitting BGCDOC

Loading Events


Doors: 7pm | Show: 8pm

“Great Scott!” Time circuits on and flux capacitors fluxing because on July 21, from 8 PM to 11 PM, Cat’s Cradle Back Room is transporting you “Back to the Future” with an adult prom. Dust off your poodle skirts or rock your 80s neon for a time-traveling adventure that’s sure to be the highlight of the summer.

“Where we’re going, we don’t need roads!” But dancing shoes are a must as attendees groove to tunes from 1955 to 1985, played by the band Mix Tape Grab Bag. Your $50 ticket doesn’t just open the doors to this retro blast—it includes a feast of heavy appetizers provided by Mel’s Catering, access to a nostalgia-inducing photo booth, and the thrill of a Dance Off competition. Who will make it to the Prom Court? It could be you!

Proceeds from this event will directly benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties. “Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one,” as Doc Brown says. By attending this prom, you’re not just reliving or reimagining a memorable night from high school, you’re investing in the future of our community!

“Remember, if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything,” Marty McFly advised. And accomplish we will! We’re thrilled that this event supports the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties, ensuring a bright future for our local youth.

Tickets are available now at Don’t be a “slacker” – this event is expected to sell out, so secure your ticket now and mark July 21 on your calendar. As Marty would say, “This is heavy!”
