Advance tickets may be purchased for $25 by calling 843-467-6742 or online at www.myrtlebeachfabulousfiftiesfestival.com. Tickets may also be purchased for $35 at the door the evening of the event.

"Wear your 50s attire, dance the night away and be fully entertained for an evening you'll remember for a long, long time," said Diane DeVaughn Stokes, Fabulous 50s Sock Hop chair.

The sock hop, a cultural feature of the 50s, was an informal dance at American high schools, typically held in the school gymnasium or cafeteria. The term "sock hop" was coined because dancers were required to remove their shoes to protect the varnished floors. Generally, records were played.
