Ball guests will relive the elegant atmosphere at the 18th century Habsburg court where exuberance and elaborate dress ruled the nights.
Come and join in the celebration, dance the night away in old world European style and new world Canadian fun and, at the same time, support our charity mandate.
Since 1962, the Austrian Society has been presenting the experience of the annual Viennese Ball to all Montrealers. This high profile Charity Event donates all proceeds to causes that fall in line with our mission. The first Ball was held in aid of SOS Children’s Villages. This globally active charity, founded in 1949 by the Austrian Hermann Gmeiner, continues to be one of our most treasured beneficiaries.

The annual Viennese Ball of Montreal brings generations and cultures together to celebrate Austrian music, culinary delights, tradition, and custom. The Viennese Ball is a look to the future with a foot firmly rooted in the past.
