The Edwardian Ball & Vendor Bazaar returns to Los Angeles on February 19th (Sunday before Presidents Day on Monday) to the exquisite Belasco Theater in downtown LA. What, dare say, is The Edwardian Ball? 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 Edward Gorey. Set in "Edwardian" times, this multi-media festival has grown over the past decade from a small underground club night into an internationally recognized event, even earning the blessing of The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust. Costumed and enthusiastic attendees, traveling from as far as Australia, Japan, and the UK, flock to this San Francisco tradition for a delightful blend of ballroom dancing, live music, riveting stage shows, DJs, fine art galleries, a vending marketplace, absinthe cocktails, steam machinery, parlour games, sideshows, and more. Saturday night sold-out this year! All 21+ ages are welcome and appropriate in this darkly humorous and elegant setting, where literary aficionados rub elbows with insect-like creatures parading on stilts... where historically-accurate Edwardian recreationists waltz by a steam-powered tea garden... where the only guiding rule is that you join in on the fun! The Edwardian Ball has been called "the quintessential must-not-miss event of the year," "a defining annual San Francisco tradition," and "a literary circus of the highest caliber" for good reason... come see for yourself! less
