Guests are encouraged to look through the Gallery from previous Vespertine Winter Ball events. Guest attire has predominantly been white/blue/silver, but those color(s) are not a requirement – even the most formal of black is welcome. Elaborate headpieces such as ice crowns/tiaras, woodland creature horns/antlers, etc. have always been very popular among guests.


Tickets are exclusively sold here on this website. They are NOT electronic, but are physically mailed. Please ensure your mailing address is correct upon purchase.

Dress Code

No street clothes (t-shirts/tank tops), no exception. Minimum attire includes: Dress shirt/dress pants, cocktail dress, etc.

This event is known for being very ‘formal costume’ heavy. Think of it as if you were entering the grand court of a Snow Queen – a world of forest creatures, ice, elegant formal attire and magic. We encourage guests to look through the albums on the Vespertine Facebook Page for inspiration and photos from prior years.
