From Hollywood to New York City, canteens were the place for soldiers to relax and enjoy good food, music, entertainment and dancing during World War II. Musicians and actors such as Glen Miller, Benny Goodman, Bob Hope, Betty Davis, Marlene Dietrich, Shirley Temple, and even former President Herbert Hoover could be found spending time with the service men at canteens across the country. Dance the night away at Rippon Lodge as it is transformed into a dance hall reminiscent of a canteen with live Big Band music, delicious food and beverages. Guests are encouraged to “Dress the Part!” and attend the event in their best dress, vintage costume, or active military uniforms. Food and non-alcoholic beverages available; extra drinks available for purchase. Discounted admission for all active military members. Reservations are required to attend this unique and fun evening dance.
