Hosted by the legendary Father Sebastiaan and the Sabretooth Clan, a leading expert on the vampire subculture, the Endless Night Vampire Ball is heralded as “The No. 1 Halloween party in the world” by TripAdvisor. It has also been described as “a Venetian masquerade ball meets a vampire court with the energy of a rock concert and the elegance of a 19th century burlesque cabaret.”
THE ENDLESS NIGHT VAMPIRE BALL™ events are a series of masquerade ball themed soirees produced by Father Sebastiaan which began in New York City in 1996 with the “Vampyre Ball of New York” and the “Main Gala Event”, the New Orleans Vampire Ball, over Halloween weekend.
The name Endless Night comes from the William Blake poem “Auguries of Innocence” in which he states “Some are born to Sweet Delight, Others are born to Endless Night.”
What makes the Endless Night most unique is the vampire and masque ball theme touched off with a Belle Epoch salon noir from the esoteric renaissance of 1890s France. Always changing and morphing according to new and diverse interests Endless Nights is purely a unique experience which is unforgettable.
The unforgettable Endless Night: German Vampire Ball will take place at the historic Das ehemalige Stummfilmkino Delphi, the former 1920’s silent movie theater, host to stars like Marlene Dietrich and Fritz Lang.
The dress code of the Endless Night Vampire Ball events is the centrepiece of our collective experience. It is a ritual and ceremony we go through each year to make the theme stand out, with the patrons (Nighters) and Krewe working together to create an unforgettable event. The more effort you make the more you will enjoy the event, and the better the energy will be.
