Strap on your cephalopod, fire up your dirigible, and steam your way to the Riverside Dickens Festival’s first annual Perpetual Motion Steampunk Ball.
Come early for instruction in the minuet, the reel, the hornpipe, the cakewalk, and the tarantella.
With free soda, crunchy snacks, and table games galore, you can while away the evening on our Airship Patio or just kick back with a game of cards on the Tobacco Terrace.
The uniquely steampunk musical program will intoxicate you, as will our no-host bar featuring three wines, six beers, mixed drinks. (NO outside alcohol is allowed.)
This is NOT your standard Victorian ball. This is a specially designed event featuring unusual period dances and actual steampunk-themed music. Our specially constructed, nine-piece steampunk orchestra will serenade you with selections from forgotten, 19th Century masters.
Dance, dream, play, chat, or just sit and listen until the Time Portal closes at 11:11:11 POST MERIDIAN.
Bring your imagination and leave your inhibitions at home, because you have never been to a steampunk ball like this one.
The gateway to Victorian adventure swings open precisely at 6:54:32 PM. Dancing begins at 8:08 PM.
Tickets—a mere $33.33 in advance.
Tickets will be $44.44 at the door if we don’t sell out.
Don’t miss out on the RDF Perpetual Motion Steampunk Ball, June 11, 2016, at the historic American Legion Post 79, 2979 Dexter Drive, in Riverside’s beautiful Fairmount Park.
A 21 and older event!
