On January 28,1393; Charles VI of France put together the first masquerade ball in the world. Since then the Masquerade Ball began as part of Europe’s carnival season. Participants gather in masks and costumes to take part in elaborate pageants and glamorous processions. Quickly spreading across France like wildfire, some of the most notorious balls of the day would be held to celebrate Royal Entries: the grand occasion of welcoming kings and queens into their cities.

This is a strictly over 21 event. No one under 21 will be accepted. Please bring a valid ID.
