Racine County Fairgrounds
Racine Founders Rotary Club is excited to present the 2021 Post Prom event! To facilitate a safe, outdoor event for our class of 2021 seniors, this year’s event will be at Racine County Fairgrounds.
Our committee has been working very hard the past few months preparing an amazing event for the Class of 2021. We know you are excited to know more about ticket and viewer bleacher sales. With all the changes being made to accommodate the new event site and Covid guidelines, it is requiring additional attention to make sure every detail is thought out thoroughly. We promise we will release information as soon as we can.
We will be keeping many of the traditions that make Post Prom so special such as live TV coverage and student motorcade, but including appropriate safety precautions to make sure all attendees have a memorable experience just as generations of Racine residents have had.
Racine Rotary Clubs have had a long and proud tradition of hosting Post Prom since 1953. It was established to provide a safe and fun environment for area graduating seniors following their respective school proms. This event is truly a Racine treasure that has grown to over 1,300 participants. The event is just one of the ways Rotary has strived to put “Service Above Self” and has been serving the Racine community for over 100 years.

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.
