Venice Carnival Ball of Dreams – 19th February 2022
Every year during Carnival the ancient palaces of Venice become stunning locations for fabulous venetian masked balls. This year, it will be the Palazzo Ca’Zen ai Frari opening its gates for the fantastic “Ball of Dreams”. It is located in the San Polo district, near the Frari Basilica. This palace is a magnificent example of a 15th century residence of the Venetian nobility. Today the palace is still owned by the Zeno family, one of the richest and oldest in the history of Venice. Inside you can see the neoclassical ceilings of Sebastiano Santi.
The “Ball of Dreams” will be a magnetic, exclusive experience as only a Venice Carnival Masked Ball can be. In the charming Palazzo Ca’Zen, you will be in the very heart of Venice and will enjoy a uniquely Venetian experience surrounded by art, music, performance and inspiration… A dream in a dream, like the very city of Venice.
Program: the doors will open at 8.00 pm with a welcome cocktail. Then, at around 9.30 pm, a most delightful gala dinner will be served. The lights will be dimmed and from the shadows dancers, players, and performers will start appearing and entertain the party. The after dinner entrance will be at about at 11.00 pm. The party will go on into the night with unique entertainment, more surprises, an open bar and a DJ set!
Dress code: To attend the dinner guests are required to be masked and costumed (historical Venetian costume). Mask and costume are included some packages. In alternative, you can wear your own costume if you already have one. For after-dinner entries the dress code is relaxed so an elegant evening dress and mask will be appropriate. Check the ticket section for the complete information and options available!

History of the carnival
Carnival, being a pre-Easter festival, means ‘farewell to meat’ and is celebrated throughout Italy. It was first held in Venice in the 11th century and consisted of over two months of revelry, until it fell into decline during the 18th century. After a long absence, the Carnival returned in 1979. The Government decided to bring back the history and culture of Venice, and sought to use the traditional Venetian Carnival as the centerpiece of its efforts. The redevelopment of the masks began as the pursuit of some Venetian college students for the tourist trade. Now the carnival attracts about 3 million visitors every year!
