Summer Nostalgia: 80’s Dance Party

July 13th 7:00pm - 1:00am ∙ Columbus, OH

Summer Nostalgia: 80’s Dance Party 

You love the 80s. We love the 80s. Everybody loves the 80s, so let’s do something about it! Our DeLorean is in the shop right now, so while we can’t take you back to the 80s, we CAN bring the 80s back to you, at least for one night. On July 13th, from 7 pm until 1 am, join us at Wicked Eden for a special 80s Edition of our Summer Nostalgia event as we set the clock way, way back, dust off our favorite tracksuits and Doc Martens, and party like 1999 is still another decade away.

Whether you wanna dance with somebody who loves you, meet West End girls and East End boys, party all the time, or go your own way, we’ll have music to suit your mood and serve as the perfect soundtrack for a night that’s sure to be a thriller. And if you find yourself getting hungry like the wolf, we’ll have a food truck on-site (from 9 until 12) to help satisfy those late-night munchies.

We’ll also have an 80s-themed photo booth and project some classic 80s movies onto our walls throughout the evening. 80s fashion is encouraged, but if crop tops, mini skirts, neon shirts and bodysuits aren’t your thing, feel free to add a scrunchie to your preferred look or go wild with the eyeshadow. More than anything, we want you to feel comfortable and to have fun!

This is not just an event; it’s a night of pure enjoyment and excitement. Tickets are available now; we recommend snapping yours up before we sell out. We can’t wait to see you there!

When it comes to attire, anything goes at Wicked Eden, we want you to feel comfortable and in the mood to have an adventure! Wicked Eden is a place where you can wear as much or as little as you desire. We want you to always feel comfortable expressing yourself in whatever ways you desire. We encourage you to go outside your comfort zone with festive, outrageous, or amazing clothing that you never get a chance to wear anywhere else. 


We LOVE volunteers! Join our team of community volunteers, and you will find new friends, a support system and a tight knit center of empowerment. Once you have obtained membership as above, please check out the volunteering section of The Autonomy Project website.

By volunteering with us you will have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on people’s lives, but you will also get perks such as discounted or free access to our events and classes, and most importantly, collaborative input in what we do here. Your ideas are important to us, and as a volunteer, we want you to feel like you’re part of our community: one that celebrates who you are and supports your journey.


Our community thrives in a space where countless delightful interactions could happen, but none are obligated to occur. Think of it as “high possibility, low expectations.” Outside of our general requirements of respect, you are under no obligation to interact with anyone in any particular way. This makes our space ideal for new faces and seasoned community members alike.


Our events aren’t the product of one person hosting a party for pay; they’re the result of a community coming together and creating something new. Everyone who attends is expected to co-create: money, time, energy, enthusiasm, work, intention, example, concern and/or awareness. Have ideas, games, art, music to share? Want to bring them to life with us?


Our gatherings are magical because of trust. We fiercely protect each member’s privacy, encourage honest risk communication, and take diligent care of our shared environments. It’s our collective respect and integrity that fortify this safe space.


Upholding consent goes beyond preventing harm; it’s about affirming everyone’s freedom to fully and joyfully agree to their interactions. It’s through this affirmation that our spaces thrive with genuine, unreserved participation.


We’re committed to inclusivity. Our community is a tapestry of individuals from diverse racial, ethnic, and social backgrounds, including all gender identities and expressions. We encourage everyone to engage with empathy and curiosity, always asking rather than assuming someone’s identity or preferences.

Our space is and always will be wheelchair accessible, with multiple spaces for varying sensory needs.


No refunds will be given on ticket purchases. Address is provided to confirmed ticket holders after purchase. Wicked Eden is located on the south side of Columbus, approximately 10 minutes from downtown, and is one block away from a COTA bus stop.


Wicked Eden is operated by The Autonomy Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to education, community building, and empowerment for individuals within the alternative sexuality community, sex work industry, and the LGBTQIA+ community. Our mission is to create a safe and inclusive space where individuals can freely express their sexuality and gender identity without fear of discrimination, judgment, or violence.
