A Night in the 40's: Big Band Dance

This year the return of the Dance will be better than ever in the inspiring surroundings of aircraft and original artifacts from World War II featuring the mighty B-17 Flying Fortress Sentimental Journey. The Sonoran Swing Jazz Orchestra returns to the stage with dancing and contests. Food and beverages are also available.
The Dance continues to be one of the most popular events in the East Valley for young and old. A great patriotic experience, many attendees dress in military uniforms from their personal service to the U.S., and many dress in vintage military uniforms from WWII or 1940s style to add to the spirit of the event. While costumes or military dress are not required, some surplus uniform items from WWII will be available for sale in the museum's gift shop starting in September.
