Secret Garden Redux: The Upside Down Halloween at 21c
As the haunting season draws near again, the curiously fantastical who dare to delve deeper into the strange and unusual mysteries lurking in plain sight will see things aren’t always exactly as they seem. Guests will be taken back to the summer of 1985 and get lost in the Stranger Things’ zeitgeist during 21c’s Secret Garden Redux: The Upside Down.
The event will feature Northside Nick and PXVCE spinning in the main gallery with projections from C Jacqueline Wood to set the mood. Serendipitous performances throughout the party by Heroes Rise and Dancefix by HBDC will bring the dance floor wherever you are from the sidewalk to centerstage, emulating popular dance crazes of the era while lifeguard go-go dancers keep watch. No costume, no problem: The best of the Queen City’s makeup professionals will be decorating guests’ faces with any finishing touches they might desire, free of charge. Costumes are highly encouraged, and a judged costume contest will offer prizes.
Cash bar provided by Metropole. Must be 21+. Event is free with a suggested donation of $10, which will benefit ACLUOhio as well as the Art Academy of Cincinnati.
