PARADOX Media & Vau de Vire proudly present The Edwardian World’s Faire & The 18th Annual The Edwardian Ball. Born in the darkened hallows of a San Francisco nightclub, this multi-night, multi-city, multi-media extravaganza has grown over the past eighteen years into an internationally recognized festival of the arts, now presenting a uniquely wonderful Edwardian world with the blessing of The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust.
The Edwardian Ball is an elegant and whimsical celebration of art, live music, riveting theatre, fashion, literature, ballroom dancing, DJs, circus spectacular, technology new & old, and the beloved creations of the late, great author and illustrator Edward Gorey. Set in a romanticized, gilded and gentile Neo-Victorian and Edwardian-era, a gothic and steampunk-tinged distant past intertwines with an elegantly imagined future. The 2018 season is proud to announce the featured Gorey story of the season, The Raging Tide: or, The Black Doll's Imbroglio: — a one- of-a-kind interactive tale by the beloved Edward Gorey.
Peruse the haunted grounds of the 1909 Masonic Ballroom. Shop and delight in the artisan crafts of the Vendor Bazaar. Capture a moment of history in the Portrait Booth. Sip a locally- distilled absinthe cocktail, and dance the night away. Lose yourself in the Museum of Wonders, located in the opulent Regency Lodge, an “Edwardian Odditorium” filled with curiosities, natural wonders, sideshow performances, fortune telling, tarot reading, live painting, and many more surprises waiting in the gilded wings
