Edward Gorey was a writer and artist who created eerie and magical stories. Gorey’s tales inspired the Edwardian Ball. What started off as a small party 22 years ago, has turned into a San Francisco subculture festival drawing thousands of people from the Bay and internationally.

The 21st Edwardian Ball was postponed due to COVID to April 1 and 2, 2022. Visit edwardianball.com for tickets and information.

This story was produced by Porfirio Rangel and engineered by Gabe Grabin.
