Rock Your Hat and Roll to the Ball!

Whether you’re mad about hats or mad about art or mad about rock ‘n roll, you’re sure to have a good time at the 15th annual Mad Hatter Ball on Oct. 20th in Eureka Springs. The event is a lavish, costumed affair and Eureka Springs School of the Arts biggest fundraiser of the year!

Taking place in the Crystal Dining Room of the 1886 Crescent Hotel, festivities will include a silent auction of jaw-dropping artwork, music, dancing and a hat contest. Live music will be provided by Joe Giles and the Homewreckers. Hats are required and partygoers get creative with their headware. Many of them sport full costumes. Awards are given each year for Best Hat and People’s Choice.

Our theme this year is Rock ‘n Roll and our poster is a revival of the 6th Annual Mad Hatter Ball, 2008, in honor of one of Eureka Springs finest artists, Max Elbo.

Tickets are $60.00 and includes dinner. The event is from 5:00 p.m. to 11 p.m. The Crystal Dining room will be open at 6:00 for seating only. Dinner will be served at 6:30.This fun fundraiser’s purpose is to aid in ESSA’s mission to provide adult and youth classes in arts and crafts throughout the year for emerging and professional artists.

If you like to be creative, dress up and dance for a good cause then the annual Mad Hatter Ball is the event for you!
