The third “signature” event of Cantigny’s fun-packed 65th summer is GLOW in the Park, a first-time, 21-and-over event set for Saturday, August 12, from 7 pm to midnight.

Guests will experience a bit of 1990s nostalgia with a twist of grown-up fun, surrounded by dazzling neon colors and glow-in-the-dark decorations and games. Music, dancing, food, and drinks under the glow of black lights will make it a night to remember.

“The idea is to give young-at-heart adults a chance to play like kids again, at least for a night,” said Matt LaFond, Cantigny executive director. “We’re

excited to offer a fun, original, and after-dark experience at Cantigny that will leave a lasting impression.”

DJ Lori Branch will spin a playlist of top hits from the 90’s and early-2000’s to set the tone, and All American Throwbacks, a high-energy pop punk/emo party band, will perform live. White clothing on the black light dance floor--yes! Glow-in-the-dark cocktails will add to the color, with a full bar offered along with meal and snack options from popular food trucks.

Guests can play mini-golf, LED cornhole and bocce, plus giant versions of Jenga, Twister and Connect 4. The truly adventurous can try their skill at axe throwing or visit a glow-in-the-dark tattoo artist.

Tickets for GLOW in the Park are on sale now at Cantigny.org. The $30 per person cost includes parking.

Guests can book a limited-edition VIP Experience ($100 additional) for a superpremium version of GLOW. Benefits include a four-hour open bar and all-you-can-eat nostalgic bites in a private tent overlooking the action. A dedicated concierge will ensure first-class service for all VIP patrons.

Only GLOW ticketholders may enter Cantigny Park on August 12 after 4 pm.
