This is not a gala. It’s circus acts, burlesque, hip-hop, drag, live music, DJs, booze & bites, all-night dancing, and much more.

On Saturday, March 30, 2019, YBCA celebrates its 25th Anniversary. There will be no sit-down dinner, no long speeches, no formalities. This will be an evening of irreverent revelry: a surprising, inclusive, and joyfully immersive celebration of community, the kind that can only be made at YBCA. This is a party with a purpose.

Every dollar raised will make it possible for us to continue to be the creative home for youth, artists and other change makers who move us to think, to feel, to question, and to act.

Let’s raise a ruckus, raise the roof, and raise some money.

Honorary Co-Chairs: Rena G. Bransten and Ned Topham
Party Co-Chairs: Amy Eliot and Meg Spriggs
Master of Ceremonies: Marc Bamuthi Joseph

Full list of performers and general admission tickets will be available in early February.
