Promchella planned for students whose prom got canceled
Nick’s Menswear has partnered up with one of Arizona’s largest event companies for the inaugural Promchella. The two-day music festival is set to take place this July in Phoenix and will feature live music, DJs, food from local vendors and more. The event is in direct response to high school juniors and seniors who were unable to have a prom this year due to the novel coronavirus.
A pre-prom tailgate party will kick off before the event and include an assortment of food trucks. Tickets will be $70 and include a $20 food truck voucher, entry into the event, pre-prom tailgate party and access to the firework show. Promchella is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all proceeds will go directly to local students and families affected by COVID-19.
Promchella is specifically designed so juniors and seniors from all over the state can have a chance to make memories together. There will be performances from local and national bands, DJs at the pre-party and hundreds of door prizes and giveaways throughout the night. Guests are invited to stay until the end for the after-prom fireworks extravaganza. Promchella is the summer camp, house party and music festival for any high school junior or senior.
“Prom is a quintessential high school experience and many students saw that slip away this year,” said Austin Morrow, Senior Class President at Chandler High School. “In an effort to provide students with an amazing, one-of-a-kind event this is an excited launch and an entirely new approach to what prom is.”
Organizers have partnered with local businesses, sports teams, media and are currently in talks with big name musical acts to perform at Promchella.
In these times of uncertainty, the wellness of guests, staff and partners is the top priority of Promchella organizers. Promchella is closely monitoring all aspects of the coronavirus situation and making daily decisions on how to best move forward to bring guests an incredible, safe experience.
“When the concerns over large public gatherings end, and they will end, people are going to be ready to get out, see their friends and make memories,” said Josh Fink, owner of Nick’s Menswear. “Something Promchella stands for.”
