Step Right Up to Aldersgate After Dark

Le Cirque – A Night of Whimsy, Wonder and Giving Back

Get ready to experience the magic and wonder of the Greatest Camp on Earth as Camp Aldersgate presents its annual signature event, Aldersgate After Dark. This year, on Friday, April 26, 2024, guests are invited to experience the enchanting Le Cirque, where Camp Aldersgate’s campus will transform into a spectacular French circus extravaganza.

It promises to be an evening filled with high-flying entertainment, delectable circus-inspired cuisine and vibrant atmospheres reminiscent of the bustling French circus scene. From the colorful escapades of the flower market to the excitement of the midway games, guests will be delighted at every turn. Savor French wines, lounge in a circus boxcar, enjoy an outdoor movie, indulge in cotton candy and dance the night away. All the action will take place onsite at 2000 Aldersgate Road in Little Rock.

Formal fashion takes a backseat as guests are encouraged to embrace the vibrant spirit of the circus. Attendees may wear their most colorful business attire or their favorite Haute Couture from a French Design house.

Leading this event for the second consecutive year is Shannon Aston, board member, co-founder of Kota Camps and the original chair of Aldersgate After Dark in 2008.

“Aldersgate After Dark is not just an event; it’s a celebration of community, creativity and generosity,” said Aston. “I am thrilled to be leading this magical evening once again and invite everyone to join us for an unforgettable night under the big top.”

Individual ticket prices for Le Cirque are $200 each, offering guests an unforgettable evening filled with magic and impact. For those looking to deepen their involvement and support, sponsorships start at $2,500, providing exclusive benefits and recognition opportunities. Tickets and sponsorships may be purchased online.

This year’s event is presented by Smiley Technologies. Proceeds from Le Cirque will directly support Aldersgate’s mission of creating life-changing experiences for individuals with special needs, ensuring that programs are available year-round to families who need them.
