The free in-person events took place place on Saturday, Aug. 8 at the Racine Zoo and outside Festival Hall at the lakefront and the previously announced virtual events were shown online.

In between the two sessions, prom-goers were on their own for dinner, shopping and enjoying local activities, like scavenger hunts and historic walking tours.

History of Prom in Racine

Following a tragic car accident that killed several SE Wisconsin students after a high school prom in 1953, the Rotary Clubs of Racine committed themselves to provide a safe and fun environment for area graduating seniors following their respective school proms. Since Rotary Post Prom has become a community-wide celebration for graduating seniors that is the ultimate culmination of their high school careers.

Over the years, tens of thousands of Racine students have enjoyed the glamour and excitements of Post Prom in Racine. And many of the Rotarians who plan and execute the event each year once were area high school students who attended Post Prom.

In recent years Post Prom has gathered national attention. It has been the subject of a award winning feature documentary entitled “The World’s Best Prom,” featured on NPR and has been a rite of passage for generations in Racine.
