Event Information

Location: San Francisco, CA
Venue: San Francisco City Hall
Dates: December 14th-15th, 2024
Attire: Formal (long gowns and suits), Magical/Wizard accessories
We welcome wizards from all magical realms to join us for a weekend full of magic and wonder! 
Our event is not affiliated with Harry Potter or J.K. Rowling in any way and no part of our proceeds will be going to anyone involved with that franchise. The Yule Ball will be similar to the one you know and love in terms of decor, the dancing, and the overall theme of magic throughout the evening, but we will not be using any IP in promos or during the event itself. We do not support, condone, or tolerate any form of transphobia. Our main focus is and always will be that our events are inclusive to all and that everyone feels 100% welcome.
