COVID-19 GUIDeLINES

Our event will be following the state and city guidelines for PLAGUE SAFETY. Vaccination and mask is REQUIRED. You must be fully vaccinated by October 15, two weeks prior to the event date, for the vaccination to take effect. Because of the numbers of patrons that travel from afar to attend, we will not accept a negative test alone for entry. The potential for infection during travel is too high. If for some reason, you cannot be vaccinated, you may transfer (sell) your ticket to another vaccinated patron before October 10th. The transfer must be done offically thru the ticket service.

Dress Code

Dress in your Masquerade best! (long formal with Mask)...or anything fabulous! Dress code will be enforced.

Basically, You CANNOT overdress for the Anne Rice Ball! We began our Ball 33 years ago and started the Halloween Renaissance that we enjoy today all over the world.

Black tie, Long formal dress, Masquerade Costume, Period Dress.

The 2019 theme is ‘Red Death‘. This lends itself to an amazing array of costuming ideas! If you’d like to take a peek at some attire inspiration, please visit our ‘Anne Rice Vampire Ball’ Pinterest Board. Vampires of any time period, dressed to impress!

 What does that mean? Here are some examples:

Tuxedo/Elegant Floor-Length Gown or Other Formal Evening Wear with Masque.

Other well-thought-out, well-planned costumes are welcome, including: Any character from Anne Rice's books, Pagan Gods and Goddesses, Druid, Gothic, Fairy, Witch, Steampunk, Historical, Dark Angel, Mythology, Burlesque, Medieval, Renaissance, Vampire, Fairy-Tale, and anything else that comes to mind that one could consider to be worthy of a formal Masquerade Ball.

To allow for elaborate theme-based costuming, knee length dresses are permitted, otherwise, dresses must be tea or floor length. Those who choose not to dress in costume or creative black tie are expected to dress in formal attire. Please do not come covered in fake Blood (or real blood) that will come off and stain the antique furniture.

(Please note that our dress code is strictly enforced. If you are not in attire appropriate to the aesthetic and extravagance of our event, you will be turned away at the gate and no refund will be given.)

The Friday night Cocktail Party does not have a dress code.
