No plans for Valentine’s Day? Check out the Edwardian Ball 2015 in LA


Valentine’s Day is almost here, and every year there’s a host of activities to choose from for your Vday needs. This year is no different. One such unique event is the Edwardian Ball, and if you happen to be in Los Angeles, it falls on the day of Love, February 14th.

The Edwardian Ball started out as an underground club phenomena in 1999 in the Bay Area. Since then they have expanded to Los Angeles and have become more than just a cult classic. Finding its home at the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood, this year you can celebrate with Edwardian flair with this year’s theme, “My Gorey Valentine,” inspired by author Edward Gorey.


Step into a uniquely immersive world, where turn-of-the-century meets world-to-be in a fantastic blend of performance and audience, of sights, sounds, and magic.  One can expect an irreverently elegant blend of theatre, circus, live music, DJs, ballroom dancing, parlour games, steam machinery, aerial performances, obscure props, period technology, games, fashion shows and an Edwardian inspired Vendor Bazaar.  All in attendance are invited to return to a time of well-dressed gentility by creating characters and costumes for the occasion – instilling amadhouse slapdashery of costumery by nearly every single attendee.

The Edwardian Ball® is returning to Hollywood’s beautiful Fonda Theatre for a night of music, dance, theatrics, circus arts, ballroom dancing, midway gaming, mischief, and, of course, the art and stories of Edward Gorey! Featuring Rosin Coven, Vau de Vire Society, TRAPEZE DJs Delachaux & The Klown, The Gentlemen Callers of Los Angeles, Gorey-inspired Fashion Show & Living Statues by Dark Garden Unique Corsetry and Bridal Couture, The John Brothers Piano Company, Owl Tree Tarot & Tinctures, Our Famous Portrait Booth, Ballroom Dancing, Rooftop Vendor Bazaar, Midway Gaming and many more TBA.  Also, attendees can enjoy absinthe cocktails, full food menu and ample parking.


It’s not for the common Valentine, but it’s perfect for the cosplayer or macabre lover in your life. Single? Who knows, you might just find the Gorey person of your dreams! Either way it promises to be a unique experience.

Tickets are on sale now at Ticketfly and prices range from $50 to $600.
