The 2020 Viennese Ball is officially cancelled due to COVID-19. We’re looking forward to once again sharing a memorable experience with you in person soon.
Stay tuned for some exciting virtual events that we have planned for you in the meantime!
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. Read more about SOS Kinderdörfer in German here, and in English here.
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.
Our debutantes and their partners take our breath away every year – they are the highlight of every Viennese Ball of Montreal. If you would like to participate as a debutante or her dancing partner, you can register right here on the website for the next in-person Ball.
