The Masquerade Ball is an elegant formal event where you can dress up, dance, and kick off the weekend with style!
Check our our dress code rules and more information here.
We’re bringing you over 800 hours of panels, performances, interactive workshops, games, videos, classes, Q&As and more this year! The program schedule usually releases about 30 days before the event with plenty of time for you to plan your weekend. This year we’ll be featuring both indoor and outdoor programming with more options than we’ve ever had before. Bring your friends and join us at Fair Park. There will be more to do than you’ll have time for.
