Starry Night Prom will not be held in 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to hosting the event in 2022.

Starry Night Prom is a semi-formal prom for people with disabilities in the Twin Cities community that happens annually on the first Saturday in May. Hosted by DeLaSalle High School’s Lasallian Ministry, the event is free and open to the public. The students who host this prom prepare by attending seminars and sensitivity training as well as planning the food service and festive decorations that transform the gymnasium into a beautiful dance hall. The event has drawn more than 1,400 guests in each of the last two years.

Entertainment, snacks, and beverages available throughout the evening. No date required. Parents and escorts welcome!

There is no charge for the event and no reservations are needed. Free will offerings are appreciated.
