  • The Dreamer’s Bal

The Dreamer’s Bal allows guests to step outside of their daily views and into a whimsical world of floating aerial artists and hot air balloons. Listen to the funky sounds of one of Cleveland’s jazz bands. Don’t forget to dress up in your best pajama costume, whether it’s the sandman or your coziest slippers.

The annual ball was once known as the Bal Ingenieux, after the early 20th century’s Kokoon Art Club’s Bal Masque. The event changes with the ever-expanding Cleveland art scene so don’t expect to see the same thing twice! Get your tickets to the gala on Ingenuity’s website.
