Is period clothing required?
No. While we certainly encourage folks to get into the spirit and wear early 19th century attire, we do not require it. If you prefer to wear modern clothing, we simply ask that you respect the formality of the occasion and wear appropriate evening wear. (Dresses for the ladies; suits and ties for the gentlemen.)
Will dinner be served at the ball?
While a formal dinner will not be served, we will offer heavy hors d'oeuvres during the event. Water and coffee are also included in your ticket price. A cash bar will be available for those wishing to partake of adult beverages or other soft drinks. (If you plan on drinking, don't forget to bring a valid picture ID!)
I would like to attend but I'd rather not dance. Are there any discounts for non-dancers?
As we have no way to enforce who dances and who does not, we are unable to offer discounted tickets for "observers." We would still enjoy the pleasure of your company, of course, and offer a gaming room with period games for the amusement of those who don't care to be on the dance floor.
