Event description

Description

Join us for the 4th annual epic Battle of the Big Bands and swing dance on Intrepid’s flight deck, presented by Prohibition Productions and the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

This special event celebrates the music, dancing and style of the swing era aboard the aircraft carrier Intrepid - commissioned at the height of this era in 1943!

Three of the best big bands in the land will go head-to-head under the stars on the flight deck, with a massive stage and 3,600-square-foot wooden dance floor. Go below deck for more live music, performances and dancing on a 1,000-square-foot dance floor. Swing dance performances, a dance contest, swing DJs, a barbershop quartet, beginner swing dance lessons, vendors and a vintage fashion contest will add to the flair.

Enjoy a spectacular lineup of over 80 performers. Vintage stylings and fashion, as well as dancing shoes, are strongly encouraged!

This event sells out every year, so buy your tickets today.
