Only teens pre-registered and paid by April 15th will be allowed to attend “Enchanted Forest” prom, as space is limited. No walk-ins. No exceptions! Couples or dates are not required and there will not be a grand march.

“Enchanted Forest” prom attendees are NOT allowed to leave and return to the prom at any time during the evening.

Cost: $55/person by March 15th and $65/person between March 16th and April 15th

The entry fee includes the use of the gardens for photos, the entire barn for dinner and dancing, the buffet, DJ, dessert, lemonade, ice water, coffee, coat/purse/coat check. There is no reduced entry fee for teens who choose not to participate in any portion of the night.

Code of Conduct/Dress Code: The “Enchanted Forest” 2020 prom committee is making every effort to ensure a wonderful and safe evening for all in attendance. There will be chaperones all night. By signing the agreement form, parents and teens agree to abide by the Prom Code of Conduct/Dress Code and agree not to hold the prom committee and/or Mankato Homeschool Connection, organizers, chaperones, JR’s Barn, facility employees, photographers, or professional DJ responsible for attendee’s conduct or that of anyone else in attendance at the prom.

ATTENDEES must be checked in by 7:00 pm or parents/guardians will be called.

ATTIRE: Formal. Corsages or boutonnieres are optional.

Young Ladies: Dresses must be 2” above the knee or longer, no cleavage, separation no more than 3 fingers width (2 piece dress), and no backs bare below the waist. Practice dancing in your dress to make sure everything stays in place. If not, pin it to your bra, add dress tape, add or tighten straps, wear a shawl all evening, etc. Please be respectful of the other prom attendees who do NOT want to look at uncovered chests bouncing on the dance floor all night. Young men avoid prom every year due to this problem alone.

Parents: Strapless dresses look nice in pictures, but they do not necessarily stay in place while dancing.

Young Men: Suits, tuxedos, or dress shirts/dress pants. Wear a tie, belt, and dress shoes.

CODE OF CONDUCT: We expect proper behavior at all times. It goes without saying, but no smoking, alcohol, drugs, weapons, or intoxication is allowed. No inappropriate language, including swearing, vulgarities, name calling, belittling, bullying, bathroom humor, etc. No inappropriate physical contact with others, including kissing, sitting on laps, provocative dancing, pushing others on the dance floor, etc. No body surfing or piggy back rides. Coats and sweaters/shawls can be removed, but dress clothes must be worn all night. Chaperones reserve the right to remove and send home any attendee if their attire, speech, and/or behavior is deemed inappropriate. Parents will be notified if attendee needs a ride. If illegal activity occurs, proper authorities will be summoned. Prom attendees are NOT allowed to leave and return to the dance. No backpacks or bags are allowed inside the prom area. Coat/bag check will be available; bags may be taken to the restrooms and then returned to the coat/bag check. The safety and security of anything or anyone cannot be guaranteed by anyone at anytime, though we will do our best to keep everyone safe.
