Fans of renaissance fairs and period pieces have the opportunity of a lifetime to combine their love of ages past with the stunning backdrop of Versailles.  For one evening each year Versailles opens its doors to masked revelers for the party of the year, The Grand Masked Ball at Versailles.  Attendees from all over the world come to eat, drink, and celebrate in the style of Louis and Marie.  The tickets are pricey but include private access to the gardens before the ball so you can enjoy the musical fountain show, as well as food and music all night long and breakfast in the gardens as the sun rises.  Masks and costumes are required, so be sure to stop by Theatr’Hall or Au Bal Masqué for a fitting in advance.  The ball takes place usually around the 3rd weekend in June, but tickets have sold out in past years so get your ticket early!

This is still one of our still one of our favorite events to attend!  It was Doug and I’s 3rd time to attend this year in 2024.  We put together a video with some tips to best enjoy the evening! Enjoy!
