Once Upon A Prom will be held on April 17, 2021 at Banbury Place in Eau Claire, WI. Please check this webpage or our Facebook page frequently as details may change per the recommendations of the CDC and the Eau Claire County Health Department.
Due to Covid, our event this year will look much different than in past years. We are trying to provide dresses to all girls who need them while being as safe as possible.
Shopping appointment sign-ups will begin on Monday, March 15.
Girls will be allowed ONE person to help them shop for a dress. All others must wait outside of the facility.
Girls will be allowed one hour to shop for a dress and shoes.
There will be no volunteer positions or seamstresses available this year.
All attendees will be required to sign a COVID release form.
We want you to feel confident in attending our event, and know that we will be taking extra precautions including, but not limited to the following:
- Requiring masks for ALL
- Limiting the number or people allowed at one time
- Allowing space for social distancing
- Encouraging frequent handwashing and sanitizing
- Providing sanitizer
- Sanitizing all publicly used surfaces frequently
- Asking all our guests who have any COVID symptoms, to please stay home. If you are currently signed up to attend and your plans change, please let us know by contacting us directly or cancelling online so we can be properly prepared.
We appreciate you, and are committed to following the recommendations from the health authorities. We look forward to seeing you soon.

About Once Upon A Prom
Once Upon a Prom is run by women who recognize that Prom is a pivotal event in a girl’s life. With fond memories of their own proms, their wish is for every girl to have the ability to experience Prom regardless of their financial situation.
All dresses and accessories (shoes, a purse and jewelry) are free of charge with the requirement that each girl complete six hours of community service to qualify.
** If you are unable to complete the community service prior to your shopping day, you may complete it after Once Upon a Prom if needed.
