The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball Happening this July

6 July 2010 by

The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball is a two-day event based on “Venetian Histories, Celtic Faerie and Goblin Lore” (and well, the movie Labyrinth). I realize this isn’t technically a convention, but it’s close enough for me and it sounds too cool not to mention. Now celebrating its 13th year, the The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball is happening July 16 – 17, 2010 at the Park Plaza in Los Angeles, California. Doors open at 8 p.m.

Performers for the 13th annual Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball include: Brother, Stellamara, Blessed Le Strange, Sylphirance, Tresk, Augustus Saunders, Wandering Marionettes, Stilt Circus, The Goblin DJ, and Nouveau Cabaret. There will also be artists from Sypher Studios attending.

Single Saturday Masquerade tickets are, unfortunately, already sold out. However, Friday night tickets are available for $49.00. There is also a The Grande LOJ Package, which includes Friday night, Saturday night, and “extras” for $113.00. No tickets will be available at the door. There will be valet parking at the doors of the Masquerade for $10.00.

Costumes fitting the theme and/or elegant formal wear with a mask are required to enter The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball. If you are concerned that you may not be able to put together a costume in time, the organizers have two costume rental companies they recommend: Make Believe and Valentinos Costumes. They also recommend Venetian Mask Society, Mansour Designs, and Merimask Designs as places to purchase masks.
