Event description


As a graduate of Centennial High School, it is an honor and privilege to help celebrate our 10th year Reunion!

Come join us for a night of fun; food, drinks, reminiscing on the best of times, and catching up with your old best friends!

We know there will be plenty of questions, so we've added a convenient FAQ section below. Please refer to that with before you reach out to the organizers (Matt Thompson and Vance Elmore, by the way).

We are really looking forward to this event; it's been a long time coming!

If you have friends that aren't on Facebook, please email, text, or share this link with them so they can purchase tickets!

Please note that ticket sales will end on OCTOBER 27TH so we can get an accurate headcount. NO LAST MINUTE PURCHASES!

Event Details:

Where: 1933 (Prohibition Lounge)

- We will be renting out the outdoor south game patio area. After the Reunion, we encourage you to stick around and continue enjoying the night as the event area will open to the public around 8pm and turn into a dance party! If you haven't been back to Bakersfield, this is one of the more popular bars in Bakersfield, especially for nightlife.

When: Saturday, November 24th - 5pm-8pm (stick around afterward)

What to expect:

- Food (Some light appetizers and a taco bar). The staff will work with us for people with special dietary needs.

- Drinks (Cash Bar after first two drinks)

- House DJ

Who: Anyone who graduated from Centennial High School in 2008 is invited. Everyone is allowed one guest (must be 21 or older). To purchase a guest ticket, alumni need to select "2" in the drop down ticket menu. Guests should not purchase their own tickets. GUESTS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY THEIR RESPECTIVE ALUMNI AT THE DOOR UPON CHECK IN. Due to the number of graduates, please limit yourself to one guest. If we foresee additional capacity, we will open ticket sales up again.

Wristbands will be given at the door once you are checked in. This is to confirm with the bartenders that you have been ID'd as well as for re-entry. If you don't get a wristband, you will not be served alcohol and you will not be allowed re-entry. Wristband replacements will not be given to avoid anyone trying to slip it off and sneak someone in. Its not that we don't trust people, but we have to cover ourselves in terms of head count and costs.

What does the ticket include?

In an effort to be fair to everyone, tickets will include the following:

1. Admission to the event

2. Meal Ticket (At minimum, one full pass through the buffet line)

3. Two (2) Drink Tickets - Well Drink, Beer, or Wine

(Alternate use for Drink Tickets availble for non-drinkers. See Below.)

What if I don't drink alcohol?

Not a problem! Water, soda, tea, and lemonade are also included in the ticket price.

But what about my drink tickets?

We will hold a raffle for anyone who will not be drinking alcohol. To enter, you will write your name on your drink tickets and drop them in the box marked for the raffle. The winner will be drawn towards the end of the night. The winner will get the total amount of money based on the tickets dropped in the box. We figure this is the easiest way to make up for the drink tickets.

What you do with your drink tickets is up to you. Use them for drinks, use them for the raffle, or give them to a friend. Your call!

What is the cost of the ticket made up of?

In an effort to be as transparent as possible, the ticket is made up the following fees:

Facility Fees (Location rental, DJ, and Bar)

Food Costs (Based on an assumed # of attendees)

Alcohol Costs (Based on an assumed # of attendees)

As organizers of the event, if we do end up with additional $$, we will donate it back to Centennial High School's Booster Club.

Why the extra $3.03?

Eventbrite charges a fee for processing the payment. The other option would be for us to come out of pocket. We hope you understand!

When do ticket sales end?

October 27th!!! We need a final headcount to share with event staff and also determine whether additional guests can be invited.

Can I buy a ticket at the door?

Listen, we don't want to turn alumni away at the door... Just buy the ticket beforehand! If you have circumstances out of your control, please contact the organizers directly and we will try our best to accomodate, but there are NO GUARANTEES

What do I need at the door when I arrive?

Valid Picture ID that matches the name of the ticket purchaser and a great attitude.

Dress Code?

Please dress as if you're going out for the night. No need for tuxes and gowns, but dress to impress. There aren't generally strict dress code policies at 1933, but after 10pm, security enforces behavior...

Cash Bar?

Bring cash or a credit card to purchase any food or drinks after the two provided drink tickets. TIP YOUR BARTENDER.


No refunds due to necessity of accurate headcounts. Rain or shine event. We wish this was an option, but please understand that we are on the hook financially if people can't make it at the last minute.
