I’m underage, if I bring my parent/guardian can I attend?
Absolutely not my young friends! In accordance with the OLCC laws and
regulations no one under the age of 21 will be allowed into the venue.
My spouse is a minor, can I bring him/her to the ball?
That would still be a negative, a minor is a minor.
Will the VMB ever be all ages?
No, it will not.
I ordered my tickets from paypal and haven’t gotten them yet!
Email Lady Raven with ticket inquiries, expect a response within 24-48 hrs.
Do I need to print out and bring my paypal receipt?
That is not necessary, but you will need to bring picture ID. If you would like to put the tickets under a different name then please specify that when you make your purchase.
What do you mean by “dress code enforced”?
No street clothes! This does not mean that you have to break the bank on a $500+ outfit, but wear your finest! If it’s your first year attending then the gallery will give you a perfect example of what guests typically wear. The dress code, if anything, is to protect the guests from “tourists” that may decide to wander in off the street and cause problems. It’s not a gother-then-thou measuring stick.
Can I bring my camera?
Yes, you can. However, we ask all guests to be mindful and courteous of others. Ask first if you want to take a photo of another guest, some arrive in a mask for good reason and don’t want their image on the internet.
**Videography is NOT allowed. The only videographer that is authorized in the ballroom is the one that I hire to document the evening. ~LR
Does the VMB have any affiliation to the LARP game, Vampire’s: the Masquerade?
No, it does not.
Does it have any affiliation to the local/regional/national vampire communities?
The vampire community has a whole has been very supportive of the event over the years and their members are most welcome to attend, but to clarify the VMB is not run or sponsored by the vampire community itself.
Is the venue wheelchair accessible?
The Fez Ballroom has an elevator, but you will need to ask the ballroom staff to operate it for you. The Melody Ballroom is also wheelchair accessible, but it’s a stair climbing machine so there are weight and chair size restrictions.
Please contact the venue directly if you would like more information.
