Join the Bride on June 4th for our annual Dance with the Bride celebration as we celebrate 47 years., Philly’s favorite spring dance party! This fundraiser will feature a feast by Miles Table and Catering, open bar and cocktails by D’usse Cognac, auction, raffle, dancing to the furiously funky band Breakwater, DJ 4ocus and pop-up performances of music, dance, masks, henna design, puppets and more.
This year we’re bringing the party back to the Bride for A Taste of Philadelphia, and we’re transforming our space with the help of Evantine Design.
Before Breakwater hits the stage we’ll have pop-up performances throughout the building:
Music: Joy Ike, singer songwriter; Kunu Bi Plus One (PaPa Ed Stokes, Tom Lowery, Lenny Seidman); Brent White Horn Trio
Dance: Lauren Putty-White; Eddie Smallwood, Bryant Lee and Yusuf Young of Kulu Mele
Henna, masks, puppets: Gina Gruenberg
This event is not to be missed. VIEW LAST YEAR’S PHOTOS.
Driving to the event? The first 30 ticket-holders will receive FREE RESERVED PARKING on Vine Street.
Are you under 30? Get a special $30 after-party ticket. From 10pm – 12am we’ll have DJ 4ocus on the turntables and food truck fare to fuel you while you dance the night away.
