There are few events more iconic in High School than one's Prom. But what about your Sims' Prom event? Here's what you need to do to set up their formal dance. For Sims 4 players who don't have the High School Years Expansion pack, we've got you covered with a mod recommendation!
How to set up Prom in The Sims 4 - High School Years
When it comes time for Prom, you'll have the event at the Auditorium next to Copperdale High School. You don't have to set up your venue as you do with birthdays or weddings, so you can simply just show up at Prom when the event pops up. The Sims 4 has Prom planned and ready to go for players eager to jump in.
If you want to, however, you can prepare the Prom venue to your liking. To prepare the building for Prom, go into Build/Buy Mode and activate Formal Dance under Lot Type in the left corner to edit the setup. Confirm that you have all of the requirements listed in the Lot Type tab and enter Live Mode when you're finished.
When does Prom happen in High School Years?
You can check when Prom will happen for your High School Sims by looking at your Sims' calendar on the bottom left of the UI screen. This is the same calendar you use for all other events in The Sims 4. You'll be able to check the time of the event and the guests attending. To be careful, try not to schedule any events that would overlap with the Prom time.
