    If you have ever wanted one night in Italy you shall have it on October 27th at Carnivale in Venice, a masquerade ball


    A masquerade ball like no other...

    A costumed event for the masses, an interactive and immersive evening of wonderment, a singular night of art, performance, dancing and imbibing in a historical Asheville establishment.


    Join our Count and Contessa as they host the event of the season, a ball to remember...

    Wear your finery and mask thyself. Masks are required for complete immersion into the age old traditions of a Carnivale masquerade!

    Extravagance and creativity will not go unnoticed, as you will have the opportunity to vie for the title of Carnivale Royalty.

    Champagne and light anitpasti will be served along with delectable sweets. A cash bar will be available for further imbibing. The evening will be capped with a celebratory and complimentary digestif.

    Enjoy the thrills of the evening with a gondola ride through the Grand Canal, a test of truth and fate at the Bocca della Verita, and delight in joy from roaming performers.

    Your evening's journey continues with a visit to Venice's Cafe Florian, a stroll through a bustling market place, and an opportunity to have your portrait made.

    The evening culminates in the theater with masterful performances, a procession of the nobles, and a finale that is sure to keep you dancing into the night...


    The Venue...

    The Carnivale in Venice will be held (not in Venice) at the historic Asheville Masonic Temple in downtown Asheville.
