Without a doubt, COVID-19 has completely transformed how we celebrate, but it hasn’t stopped the party. This summer isn’t canceled because UPTOWN After Dark 2020 is going virtual on Saturday, Aug. 22nd! Instead of taking over Martha’s Vineyard, the event of the summer is taking over the web, and you’re invited to the best digital party of the year.

UPTOWN After Dark is an interactive social distancing event with lots of surprises and unique opportunities in store. Event highlights will include:

  • DJ Jon Quick and DJ Darrin Ebron spinning live on the main-stage
  • A photo booth to capture your exciting virtual party memories
  • Interactive meeting rooms featuring a Mixology Lounge and Throwback Vineyard Photos
  • An expo and marketplace featuring some of the hottest Black-owned businesses, sponsored by Advancing Black Pathways at JPMorgan Chase & Co.
  • Networking opportunities that allow you to launch a video chat with anyone -- one-on-one or in a group
  • Live hosts
  • Special guests and much more

We won’t be together on the island this year, but you can still bring the UPTOWN After Dark vibes to your backyard. We encourage you to host your own socially-distant event. Just think, there’s finally a party where everyone can get tickets and find parking. Get dressed up, pour your favorite adult beverage (check the UPTOWNStyle and Culture sections for cocktail recipes), and have some fun! Wherever you are, this will be a night to remember!

(Don’t worry, you can still join the fun from your smartphone.) RSVP today!
