PARADOX Media and Vau de Vire Society present: The Edwardian World’s Faire and The 20th Annual Edwardian Ball

Following the World’s Faire, we return to our Ballroom for the most decadent night of our season! This is the night that started it all, The Edwardian Ball, 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.

Both nights… peruse the haunted grounds of the 1909 Masonic ballroom. Shop and delight in the artisan crafts of our famous Vendor Bazaar. Capture a moment of history in our Portrait Booth. Sip a locally-distilled absinthe cocktail, and dance the night away. Lose yourself in our Museum of Wonders located in the opulent Regency Lodge, our “Edwardian Odditorium” full of curiosities, natural wonders, sideshow performances, fortune telling, tarot reading, live painting, and many more surprises waiting in the gilded wings. Each year, The Edwardian Ball also presents a featured Edward Gorey tale in an original stage performance.

Featuring

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

Set in a romantically reimagined Edwardian-era, the Ball celebrates its 20th Anniversary in a thriving, two-night blend of subculture and participant-created revelry, described by the SF Weekly as “the quintessential must-never-miss event of the year!”

Friday night’s Edwardian World’s Faire presents an exposition of art, technology, a tribute to Gorey’s world of “The Lost Lions,” and a retrospective look at two decades of The Edwardian Ball. Saturday night we sweep the expo clear for Ballroom Dancing and a night of revelry for our 20th Anniversary soiree!
