Marquee Ball

Marquee Ball

The Marquee Ball is our fabulous annual gala dinner, auction and dance party. Each Spring we choose a movie as a theme, and partygoers dress up in costume with eye-popping results for Balitmore's Best Party! The Marquee Ball supports the Creative Alliance's free afterschool and neighborhood outreach programs. Creative Alliance's programs are praised for their high quality by parents, teachers and educating institutions alike. Annually, nearly 2,000 Baltimore City elementary and middle school students learn new concepts and vocabulary, problem solving and social skills through making complex arts projects. They get excited about learning!

This Year's Event:
Saturday, April 16th
