[Update as of Jan-14-2020] As many of you know, the Vespertine Winter Ball did not take place in December 2019 as planned; due to the ceiling partially collapsing in the Kridel Grand Ballroom, September 2019. Good news! The repairs are nearly complete and the ballroom will be reopened in February! The 8th Vespertine Winter Ball will revive once again on December 19th, 2020!
What is the Vespertine Winter 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 Vespertine Winter Ball (VWB) will be hosted at the Portland Art Museum in the Kridel Grand Ballroom with catering provided by Vibrant Table Catering & Events. Detailed information regarding VWB 2020 will be released throughout the Summer with tickets going on sale in September.
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.
Performer Information will be released in Fall 2020!
