Registration Links

Graduates must register through Eventbrite, using the link below for their school. Graduates must show their digital tickets to gain access to the Fairgrounds. This digital ticket allows them to enter the event, bring a guest and receive their complimentary gifts. Guests must be in ninth grade or higher, 20 years old or younger, and they must enter Project Graduation with a graduate.

June 2

Graduates who have tickets can enter until 10:30 p.m. Participants who leave the party early will not be allowed to return. The drawing for the main prizes begins at 11 p.m. and graduates must be present to claim their prizes.
Members of the Charles County Sheriff’s Office, the Maryland State Police and other law enforcement officers will be stationed at the south gate entrance of the Charles County Fairgrounds to verify the graduate’s entry ticket. All vehicles are subject to a search by police officers. The contents of any bag brought in by a graduate and/or their guest will be searched at the gate. No tobacco, alcohol, drugs, or weapons — including knives of any kind — are permitted. Students who attempt to enter the premises with weapons and/or contraband will be turned away, the items seized with possible charges to follow. Chaperones and law enforcement officers will monitor the event to ensure it is drug- and violence-free.
