The First Annual Harlem Nights Extravaganza will be an experience like no other. This event is designed to take everyone back to the Harlem Renaissance Era. That’s right!

So why not bring a taste of class from Harlem in the 1930s to Dallas in 2014. This is when Men will pull out their Zoot Suits, Tailed Tuxedos, Top Hats, and the Ladies will dress with elegance and class showing off their fancy Gowns. Can you picture it???
