Chapman University's American Celebration is an Orange County tradition and one of Southern California’s most highly anticipated events. Now in its 34th year, this night of dazzling entertainment features a cast of more than 100 singing and dancing students from Chapman’s acclaimed College of Performing Arts, accompanied by a live orchestra. The black-tie gala includes a lavish evening of dinner and dancing – one you don’t want to miss.

The extravaganza is produced by Chapman University with vital support from Orange County’s most committed philanthropists and volunteers. In total, American Celebration has raised more than $26 million to provide scholarships to Chapman’s best and most deserving students.
