The Edwardian Ball is an elegant, whimsical celebration of art, music, theatre, fashion, technology, circus, and famed author Edward Gorey, set in an imagined “Edwardian” era. Now in its fourteenth year, this year’s event features an original staging of Gorey’s classic, “The Curious Sofa”, presented by co-hosts Rosin Coven and Vau de Vire Society.
Enthusiastic attendees, traveling from all corners of the globe, flock to this SF tradition – hailed as “the quintessential must-never-miss event of the year!” – for a delightful blend of ballroom dancing, live music, riveting stage shows, DJs, art galleries, absinthe cocktails, steam machinery, parlour games, sideshows, a carefully curated vendor bazaar, and much more. All ages are welcome and appropriate in this darkly humorous and elegant setting, where the only guiding rule is that you join in on the fun!
Tickets are $40-$90 in advance and $45-$100 at the door. For info and tickets please visit edwardianball.com.
