Since its inception 13 years ago, the Edwardian Ball has grown into a much-anticipated multi-media event that merges music, ballroom dancing, carnival games, acrobatics and fashion into “an elegant and whimsical extravaganza…” that celebrates the creative spirit of author / illustrator Edward Gorey (1925-2000). Founded in San Francisco by Rosin Coven and co-hosted by the Vau de Vire Society, the Edwardian Ball returns to Los Angeles this February for the third time and promises another night of fun for all ages.

In case you missed the January 16th update to my first post about the 2012 Edwardian Ball Los Angeles, the event had to be postponed because the original venue, The Music Box in Hollywood, unexpectedly closed. While it was unclear for a brief time when and where the Ball would take place, I’m pleased to report that the event’s producers have regrouped and everything is back on track. Read their update below for all the latest details.

When Justin Katz and his San Francisco-based band Rosin Coven set out to celebrate Edward Gorey’s whimsically macabre aesthetic in 1999, little did they know that the event would grow into a beloved Bay Area tradition (one that has recently spread to Los Angeles). But that is exactly what the Edwardian Ball is today.
