Get ready to stroll through the formal gardens of Cantigny Park. This estate belonged to Joseph Medill and Robert R. McCormick, publishers of the Chicago Tribune, and for one night it will be host to the 2019 Midwest Teen Prom!
Teens should plan to arrive at the park no later than 6:30 p.m., however we recommend they come much earlier to enjoy the 500-acre park. We recommend that teens take pictures inside Cantigny Park and take advantage of some of the most beautiful photo opportunities in the Western Suburbs!
At 6:30 p.m. all teens should be in the Le Jardin banquet room in order for there to be enough time to register and be seated for a luxurious 4-course dinner at 7:00 p.m.
The event will end at 11:00 p.m. and we ask that parents arrive by 10:45 p.m. to pick up the teens from the dance.
If you have dietary questions or restrictions, contact Heidi Ammons at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1st.
