We’re still having hayrides, bonfires and prizes for costumes….but the namesake “Sadie Hawkins,” as well as the fiddlers and the square dances have been replaced.

The new name is the Barn Dance and Costume Fest.
The new entertainment is a DJ.

Last chance to buy tickets is Oct. 19 -21 (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday)

  • Lunchtime in commons
  • $22/individual; $42/pair.
  • No ticket sales at bus boarding!

Barn Dance & Costume Fest
Friday, Oct 23

6 p.m. - Board Bus
6:30 p.m. - Depart
9:30 p.m. - Early bus return (for students taking 9/24 SAT)
10:45 p.m. - Return (for all other students)
(South's 32nd Street parking lot is where parents should await bus arrival.)

Families please encourage your high schoolers to attend. This is a dance intended to be without dating pressure. The entire student body is welcome and needed to enhance school spirit.

Attending students must get a permission slip in the office and buy tickets at lunchtime in the commons. Any student short on cash can talk to a social worker to cover the ticket cost.

Wear a crazy costume! 

  • Cash prizes for individual (3), pair (2), and group of three (1). No weapons or weapon replicas are allowed. 
  • Your face may be painted, but must be uncovered. In any case dress warm, as it may be cool!
  • No packs, beverages or water bottels will be allowed on bus.
  • There will be hayrides, bon fires, chuck wagon, drink shack, and a DJ in the barn with a contemporary playlist.
  • Dance admission, hayride and bus is included in the price of the ticket.
  • Food and beverages available for cash.

Event is same format as Sadie Hawkins, save for no requirement for date, and we have switched square dancing for a DJ for popular appeal. Come with your friends! Friends from other schools must additionally submit a guest form to be certified by their school of attendance.

We need chaperones, both staff and parents! Chaperones will receive free beverages all evening at the drink shack. Please email arthur.french@mpls.k12.mn.us to volunteer as chaperone or for other dance information.

This event is sponsored and produced by the South High School Chapter of National Honor Society (NHS) and its members.
