The value of an unused GA ticket can be applied to the summer or winter event the following year — just email us at info@1940sball.org when tickets go on sale and we will look up your order and if they were unused we’ll send you new tickets. You do not need to do anything now. *This must be done at least 1 month before the event you’d like to transfer to–requests less than 1 month out will not be accepted. VIP tickets can be transferred as well, however, you must let us know at least 1 week prior to the event you purchased tickets for so that we can cancel your catering order.

Is dressing 1940s mandatory?

If you or your guests are new to the 1940s Ball, this is a themed party celebrating the 1940s and 50s swing era. There is a dress code for this event in keeping with the theme, the historic sets and automobiles. Please visit:   https://1940sball.org/1940sball/1940s_christmas_ball/40s-shops/  for ideas and recommendations in the “Dressing 1940s” section. Actual vintage dress is best, however if you cannot find period attire to wear, women can wear a modern dress that is cut like those from the era with vintage accents such as vintage jewelry, gloves and/or a flower in their hair and men can wear a modern suit that looks similar to those of the era with accents like a fedora, suspenders or a bow tie.  ****Please wear shoes you are comfortable standing and moving in for 3+ hours.
