Meet & Greet
Held the night before the Vampire’s Masquerade Ball, the Meet & Greet is a tradition where attendees of the Ball can grab a cocktail and mingle with locals and out-of-towner’s the night before. Information on location and time to be announced in 2017.
The Waltz at Midnight
In 2008, the violinist Paul Mercer initiated what was to become a tradition every year at the VMB, the waltz at midnight. While the evening is filled with gothic/industrial music, at midnight is when the attention is given over to classical instruments. This is when all guests are invited to waltz with their partners on the main floor. Videos of previous midnight waltz’s in past years can be viewed on our video’s link.
What do you mean by “Dress Code Enforced”?
The VMB is a formal event and not to be confused for a ‘costume party’. Appropriate attire includes tuxedos, ball gowns, corsets, period wear (Victorian, Edwardian, Renaissance, etc.), neo-Victorian, evening gothic club wear. Suits and cocktail dresses are also appropriate attire.
NO STREET CLOTHES ALLOWED (blue jeans, t-shirts, tank tops, etc.).
Are masks required? No, but they are encouraged. Guests wearing masks have always been around 50/50.
Where do you recommend I shop? Aside from the vast internet, you should check out what the local area has to offer in our shopping/dining link.
What is the VMB?
The Annual Vampire’s Masquerade Ball is a night of gothic elegance and decadence highly anticipated each year in the city of roses and hosted exclusively by Lady Raven Productions. It’s an evening where over 800 guests from the various gothic/industrial/alternative lifestyle communities from around the nation and the world gather in the Melody Ballroom amongst crystal chandeliers and Edwardian cornices to socialize and dance the night away. The VMB strives to offer its guests the experience of a formal gala at an attainable price; shared with like-minded company from the gothic/industrial communities who appreciate creative and individual expression, and the event is of course LGBTQ friendly. The name “Vampire’s Masquerade Ball” is meant to evoke dark romanticism and a gothic interpretation of beauty. While the event is not sponsored or organized by the vampire community, they have always consistently been very supportive of the VMB, and are welcome to attend.
Dancing is only one of the many entertainments the VMB offers. The venue is divided between two floors with captivating live performances and local DJ’s spinning gothic/industrial in the grand ballroom; while in the lower ballroom regional vendors will be selling their wares. Additionally a lavish, professionally catered buffet of savory cheeses, meats, and baked goods awaits, as well as a delectable dessert selection and fountains of chocolate. Fully stocked bars including an absinthe fountain and specialty cocktails will be available on both floors and do accept credit cards.
Consider the Vampire’s Masquerade Ball an opportunity to dress in your finest evening or historic dress! Over the years the observed guest attire has included every genre from the gothic scene including old-school goth, steampunk, Edwardian, Victorian, Cyberpunk, all the way to black tie and regal ballgowns. To further clarify, the VMB being a formal event should not be confused with a “costume party” or re-enactment, and street clothes are not permitted. Guests are encouraged, but not required, to arrive masked. If you have any questions about dress code please email Lady Raven.
The Melody Ballroom, site of the VMB since 2007, was established in 1925. Its historic ambiance is enhanced by thirty-foot ceilings, scarlet walls, marble staircases, and as the staff say, hauntings! A elevator is currently being installed and will be operational in time for the 2017 VMB.
*If you are flying into Portland: Our rail system services the PDX Airport. The MAX Red Line goes from the airport all the way into downtown and passes through the hotels near the Convention Center on the East Side of the river (the side of the venue). Please visit Tri-Met to plan your public transportation needs.
Any questions about the VMB can be directed to the event’s organizer, Lady Raven
