Overall Program

P40 celebrates the ruby anniversary of Prince Rogers Nelson’s ascension — starting with 1978.

The program features musical, culinary, and educational components. We expect to incorporate fashion as well. In short, it’ll be the kind of multifaceted experience Prince liked to stage. You needn’t be enamored with the artist to enjoy yourself. It’ll be a night you won’t soon forget.

Bob your head or cut up the floor as DJ HoBo spins Prince tracks vintaged 1977-1983.

Delight in Prince’s favorite herbal teas, cookie recipe, funky pancakes, and more.

Walk an exhibit of early Prince publicity, ephemera, merch, and musical instruments.

Listen to author Eric S. Townsend read a chapter from his new book, Paisley Prince.

COMING SOON — Shop street and formal wear from inspired local designers.


For those in search of the ultimate experience, we have something special planned. Hold and take selfies with Prince’s iconic guitar, favored microphone, and concert-used tambourine. Leave with a signed copy of Paisley Prince and attend an intimate, late night Q&A with the author, Eric S. Townsend. Meet and greet with any Prince insiders in attendance. Receive a permanent shout-out on the forthcoming SAY YES tab of our website.
