Is dressing 1940s mandatory?
We strongly advise 1940‘s themed evening attire, party dresses and/or uniforms. Actual vintage dress is best, however if you cannot find period attire to wear, women can wear a modern dress that is cut like those from the era with vintage accents such as vintage jewelry and/or a flower in their hair and men can wear a modern suit that looks similar to those of the era with accents like a fedora, suspenders or a bow tie. Please be aware that the event is at an active airport and the ground is uneven in some areas and has grass and gravel, we recommend comfortable shoes.

The entire event is handicap accessible, we offer handicap parking and folks with wheelchairs are able to access most areas. At the summer event there is grass and gravel, but everything is on one level.
Are children allowed at the event?
As the 1940s Ball is a romantic date night, children 12 and under are not permitted. We do have the Ball in collaboration with Boulder Airport day so that families can come out and enjoy the planes and some of the displays during the day. Please check with the Boulder Airport to see if this is happening this year.
