What shall I wear?

The Viennese Ball of Montreal is a very special event and the perfect occasion to wear formal evening attire, that is full-length ball gown for the ladies, and black tie (tuxedo) or tails (white tie) or gala uniform for the gentlemen. This year’s Fledermaus Ball will add an intriguing touch to the dress code for the particularly adventurous and romantic among you: if you are so inclined, you are welcome to wear a fanciful facemask – the more elegant and elaborate, the better. For more details on how to dress, please refer to our Dress Code section.

I can’t dance. Can I still go to the ball?

Absolutely. The Viennese Ball of Montreal is as much about conviviality, meeting people and having a great time at the Casino and the “Heurigen” as it is about dancing. However, if you would also like to join in the fun on the dance floor, we have the perfect solution for you: If you buy your tickets by November 1, you can enjoy free dance lessons during the two weeks immediately preceding the ball. You will receive vouchers for your dance lessons with specifics as to time and place.


I would like to attend the ball, but I am from out of town and need a place to stay overnight.

Whether you are coming to the ball from out of town or just want to fall right into bed after a glorious night of exuberance and dancing, ball ticket holders will enjoy a special overnight rate of $179.00 plus tax at the Mariott Chateau Champlain Hotel. All you need to do is call the hotel directly at 514.878.900 and make the arrangements by October 21 at the latest. This way you can savor the merriment to the fullest on the night of the Ball, then just go upstairs, kick off your dancing shoes and start dreaming already of next year’s Viennese Ball…

I want to be a Debutante/Partner of a Debutante. What do I need to know?
