Venice Is Sinking: A Venetian Masked Carnivale Ball

  • February 9, 2013 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Venice Is Sinking is a gorgeous, sexy celebration of Venice's Carnival (the classier version of Mardi Gras). This party is THE party of the year in Seattle and is not to be missed.

Our Meet Up group will gather at 7:30PM just outside the entrance to the VIP Lounge. Look for Stasia and T'Chani.


Urgent Update:

The correct address for Bell Harbor is: 2211 Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA 98121 ~ NOT 1301 or whatever was on the Eventbrite ticket page. Sorry! Google Maps automatically populated to the incorrect address when we originally created the event.

The Ball is at Bell Harbor at PIER 66!!!



Much like Carnival in Venice, Venice Is Sinking celebrates World Music and tantalizes party goers with performances by Cirque de Soleil-like performers:

*A troupe of Aerialists (featuring Tamara the Trapeze Lady and Jenn Q) will be hanging and performing from the ceiling via hoops, fabric, and more
*Fuchsia Foxx ~ Burlesque
*Fleurs d'Egypte Belly Dancing Troupe
*Noelle Wood, Aerialist Pole Performer
*Stilt Walkers
*Psychics & Tarot Card Readers tent

....There is a surprise around every corner.

*Geoffrey Castle: electric six-string violinist

*FRACTAL: is a collaboration between DJ Sorbello and percussionist Brian Fischer

*Rafe Pearlman ~ Aramaic Chanting



EVERYONE must wear a Venetian style mask in order to gain entry to the Ball; and you're encouraged to wear your mask the entire evening, to add to the allure and sensuality of the event.

Guests are encouraged to dress in costume, (think Marie Antoinette era, and tails for the men). Wigs, festive hats...the sky's the limit.

Otherwise, Formal is desired (Tuxedos and suits for men). Long gowns for the women. No jeans, khakis, etc. or you will not be allowed entry.

COSTUME CONTEST: Prizes will be awarded for Best Female, Best Male and Best Couple costume of the evening. We have a panel of stylish judges who will be making the call.

Visit A Masquerade Costume in Bellevue and Seattle (Georgetown) to buy or rent a costume, they also have dozens of gorgeous Venetian Masks to purchase also. TELL THEM YOU'RE GOING TO VENICE IS SINKING AND THEY WILL DONATE 10% to the featured non-profit:

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
