After Prom is a community-sponsored, safe and fun-filled evening following the Boulder High and Fairview High Proms. Our goal is to provide students with a memorable After Prom experience.
The event will include food, casino, prizes, games and more!
After Prom was developed by concerned parents and administrators after a series of tragic alcohol/drug-related accidents claimed the lives of 11 Denver/Boulder Metro area teens in 1995. After Prom is a drug and alcohol-free alternative to unsupervised parties.
