Saturday, November 16

$35 at the door
19+ event, make sure to bring your ID

Masks for the first 50 ticket-buyers are already sold-out. If you've not bought your ticket yet, we would love it if you showed up to the masquerade with a mask. There are nice and affordable options at McCulloch's, just don't buy one with glitter (it sticks around the Museum forever).

The event dress code is semi-formal (slacks, skirts, etc.) but if you feel comfortable in jeans, then feel free to wear what you feel comfortable in.

Step into the moonlight for London's most mysterious and elegant art party, Night at the Forks, while overlooking the Thames River / Deshkan Ziibiing. Expect the same stylish atmosphere, innovative food, and a few surprises thrown in for good measure.

This night of revelry is the second edition of our fundraiser which provides vital funds to keep our children's programming free or low-cost. After last year's sell-out success, we've established London's most glamorous and unique event of the year. Celebrate culture in our city and ensure that the next generation will have access to enriching cultural experiences.

Join us for our one-night only concert and masquerade party to raise funds for our children's programming! This unforgettable night features an exclusive DJ set by Jessy Lanza, opening DJ set by Empyrean Productions, drag performances by Miss Taken, and the first 50 ticket buyers get a free masquerade mask. Enjoy the best cocktails, local craft beers, wine, and hors d'œuvres the city has to offer while lounging around or moving on the dance floor. If you've never had a portrait done of you before, this is your chance! Artist Andres Garzon will be doing his Rainbow Portraits all night long. Sign up to sit as a subject and leave with your own colourful original portrait.

Jessy will be performing an exclusive DJ set for Museum London loaded with disco and pop. From Hamilton, ON, Jessy has been making her unique sound known with performances for Boiler Room and Red Bull Music Festival.

Jessy Lanza's second album 'Oh No' is addressed to her own constant nervousness. The pressure of music making, which used to calm her nerves, has led to a whole new world of contingencies that stoke the anxiety mill. The exclamation 'Oh No,' for Jessy, marks yet another incident of randomness interrupting her tranquillity. All of which seems at odds with the confidence and spontaneity of this second album as well as recent collaborations with the likes of Caribou, DJ Spinn and Morgan Geist and his Galleria project.

Empyrean Productions

Empyrean Promo

They're back for another year to heat up the dance floor!

Drag Performances by Miss Taken

Miss Taken

Miss Taken is a Drag Performer recognized for her artistry and energy. Respected in the London community for her outfits and style, her creativity enchants and mesmerizes observers. Taken's performances frequently feature undertones of environmentalism, Brazilian heritage, Bossa nova, and a unique dancing style that is both contemporary and tribal.

Known for her unique performances and dance style, Miss Taken will envelop you like a warm breeze from the tropics. A bearded gender-bending queen, this drag artist let you experience something special and unique. Join us, and you will think about your night out for days to come.

There will be two beautiful performances by Miss Taken and she will also be your host of the night!

Rainbow Portraits by Andres Garzon

Andres Garzon

Throughout the entire evening, the artist Andres Garzon will draw an elegant and quick portrait of you in their signature style. Sign up for a sitting time when you get into the party because they book up fast. Portraits take around 5 to 10 minutes to complete and will be stored while you're on the dance and ready for you to pick up on your way out.
