What is the Vespertine Ball? It is a 21+ Gothic white winter formal/costume/woodland-creature ball that is elegant, sophisticated, and intimate, featuring the best in Gothic/Synth-Pop music and captivating visual performances. The Adrianna Hill Grand Ballroom, built in 1901, reigns as one of the oldest and most decadent of the remaining historic ballrooms in the heart of Portland, Oregon.
No street clothes, no exception. White/silver/blue attire encouraged, however, for those that still want to wear their blackest black, that is perfectly acceptable as well. In the past, the style of dress by attendees has ranged from formal to elegant Gothic to woodland creature costumes. We encourage guests to look through the albums on the Vespertine Facebook Page for inspiration and photos from prior years.
There is a large SmartPark parking garage directly across the street from the venue. The entrance to the garage is on SW 10th Ave, between Yamhill and Morrison.
