111 W Harbor Dr, San Diego, CA
The Ballroom 20 stage becomes a showplace for a fun competition of creativity with impressive re-created and original design costumes crafted by our talented attendees presented before an audience of thousands. Not a dance or party but a talent show on a stage with trophies, cash prizes, and other awards for the top entries. Doors open for audience seating at 8:00, but the line for choice seating will begin hours earlier. Since the ballroom can fill up, tickets are required for seating inside and will be given out free at noon to those lined up. Any tickets that remain will be given out at the Masquerade Desk after 3:00. The Master and Mistress of Ceremonies will again be writers/artists Phil Foglio and Kaja Foglio, and there’ll be special live entertainment during the Judging Intermission. Overflow seating available in the Sails Pavilion, 5AB, and 6A (tickets not required for those rooms).
