The Yule Ball

Wanna party, Harry Potter style? Every year we close out Dragon Con with a Sunday evening Yule Ball! Come decked out in your finest–or come in jeans (we’re cool cats like that)–and party with your fellow YA Lit nerds.

The Yule Ball starts at 8:30 P.M. on Sunday night, and will be held in the Imperial Ballroom at the Marriott.  The Marriott may have a cash bar set up outside the ballroom, so alcohol may be present in the ballroom.  We will announce the winner of our House Cup fundraising competition.  

Song requests were taken on social media for the past several months.  No song requests will be taken at the Ball.  

This year, we’re showcasing ALL of our talented young adult literature costume-makers.  Come to the Yule Ball in your best YA Lit costume, and at 9:30 P.M. we’ll announce where to meet for staging, and everyone who wants will get a chance to parade their finest costumes for all to see.  To participate, please meet in the Costume Showcase Staging Area by 9:30 P.M. .

After the costume showcase, it is recommended that parents with children exit the Ball at that time.  The Yule Ball continues from 10:00 P.M. until 2:00 A.M. for adults only.
