A marvellous and mysterious event...a Halloween celebration of the extravagant and the grotesque...an all-night spectacle of atmosphere, costumery and diverse entertainments...an explosion of live music, dancing, circus arts, fire and late-night revelry, snake-charmed into an absinthe-fueled early-morning speakeasy.

Live entertainment:
- Dark, danceable anthems of mischief by Shayfer James & his gentlemen band
- Expressionist puppet ballet by the Royal Baritarian Players
- Blasphemous burlesque by Fox Trotsky, Lewd Alfred Douglas, and Anja Keister
- Ukelele-meets-Shakespeare by Stav Meishar
- Mad Weimar poet Gregor of Berlin
- Victorian troubadour accordionista Karen Yair
- A demonic dance floor by handpicked DJs

Exciting diversions:
- Fantastical face & body painting by Painteresse Elyzabeth
- Mystifying silver film likenesses produced in front your very eyes by Tsirkus Fotografika
- Live party painting by Yao Xiao
- Frighteningly accurate fortunes told by practitioners of the occult arts
- Absinthe and other mind-altering potions by The House of St Eve (yes, t.h.o.s.e. cocktails...)

Bone-chilling collections in the cabinet of curiosities:
- Dark machines by Empire S.N.A.F.U. Restoration Project
- Torture chamber dollhouse by Cynthia von Buhler
- Prints from the Cabinet collection by Madeline von Foerster
- Arcane tarot paintings by the Mistress of Magic Katelan V. Foisy
- Frightening finery by Gilding Primal Instinct

VIP tea salon, $30:
8-9:30pm - Join us for unlimited tea, cakes and sweets, and first access to art & diversions, while being entertained by special acts. Perfect your costume with an elaborate face or body paint design; get photographed while the look is still fresh; and marvel at the Cabinet of Curiosities, all before the crowds get there. An additional $20 gets you a commemorative Masquerade Macabre hip flask engraved with the monster hybrid Victorian couple from the event flyer.
