About This Year's Mad Hatter Ball

The magic of the Mad Hatter Ball returns to the Crescent Hotel on October 20th, 2023! This year’s Mad Hatter Ball theme is a nod to ESSA’s 25th Anniversary, or silver anniversary: “Hollywood: The Silver Screen.”

Get ready as we roll out the red carpet with a night of fun, music, food, and of course, hats!

TESTUBE will provide the beats as guests dance the night away in their finest flare. As always, a fabulous online and in-person auction will give attendees near and far the opportunity to take home magnificent works of art, craft, gift certificates, and more… all supporting the Eureka Springs School of the Arts. Stars and starlets attending the live event can wet their whistles at the Crescent’s full bar and enjoy a fabulous pasta buffet with delicious desserts.

Of course much like the anticipation of the Oscars, the main event will be the Hat Contest, where the craft and dedication to the art of magnificent millinery will be celebrated and honored! May the best man, woman, or group, win… break a leg, folks!

Be a part of the glitz and glamour of Hollywood with ESSA’s premiere event, The Mad Hatter Ball – Hollywood: The Silver Screen!”
