Headlining DJ set (midnight, main ballroom) at

The 18th Annual Edwardian Ball® San Francisco

Nigh impossible to describe, but absolutely delightful to experience, The Edwardian Ball is an elegant and whimsical celebration of art, music, theatre, fashion, technology, circus, and the beloved creations of the late, great author and illustrator Edward Gorey.

Set in a re-imagined “Edwardian Era,” this multi-city, multi-media extravaganza has grown over the past 18 years from an underground party into an internationally recognized festival of the arts, working in partnership with The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust.

This is the night that started it all, presented by co-hosts Rosin Coven and Vau de Vire Society. Ballroom dancing leads way to stunning performances both on and offstage in a collage of fashion, theatre, music, circus performance, and dance.

As many may know, each year we focus on a delightful work from Gorey’s vast bastion of literary delights. For 2018, we are beside ourselves to feature Edward’s one and only choose-your-own-adventure tale: “The Raging Tide: or, The Black Doll’s Imbroglio.” Fortunately for all, our passionate Edwardian community has already determined the course of this boggling tale in a scene-by-scene extravaganza! The chosen narrative will now be scored and choreographed for an original stage performance at the Ball. (See how it unfolded here)

Tickets for our spectacular 18th Season are now on sale. Don’t delay!
