Buffalo Rising presents

The 2017 Witches Ball

Saturday, October 28, 2017
@ Statler City
7 p.m. – 1 a.m.

Tickets are currently available!


The Annual Halloween Masquerade hosted by Buffalo Rising is back @ Statler City on Saturday, October 28, 2017. The Witches Ball is a high-fashion horror event featuring dozens of local artists, musicians, and performers.

Snag your tickets quick! This event typically sells out!

This year we have added a VIP section on the mezzanine level overlooking the central courtyard, where guests will have access to a custom made Champagne Cloud, Bootleg Bucha cocktails, open bar (see details below), and hors d’oeuvres. It’s the perfect Halloween getaway for those who want to dance in the clouds.

This will be the first year that the event will feature a silent disco. There will also be scores of wandering acts, and roaming pop-up dance troupes. This massive Halloween escapade will literally take over Statler City in 2017, with over eight performance spaces and five separate event stages. Some event highlights include:

  • Silent Disco by SE² Silent Disco
  • Dames of the Dead, our exclusive Halloween-themed band
  • Walk the Haute Horror Black Carpet, and get a free professional photo taken by Living in the Buff Studio. All photos will be uploaded LIVE to The @WitchesBallBuffalo Facebook page and automatically entered into our Virtual Costume Contest. The virtual contest will once again be hosted by Adam Boyd & Playboy model Ashley Noel, along with a panel of judges. Winners will be announced on Halloween. Start planning those costumes.
  • A revival and revision of the amazing Seven One Six Sideshow by MaddTat2 first seen at Music is Art.
  • Mason Winfield and Ivy Rivera’s Psychic Academy will take over the Lobby Bar.

There’s more to see and do than ever before. With last year’s focus on dancing, this year we focused on exploring, as well as nonstop dancing: the event has added dozens of roaming acts, dancers, pop-up dancers, as well as scheduled stage shows. With non-stop DJ music (zero interruptions), and dedicated stages for performances. There will also be plenty of featured bands throughout the night.
