The Viennese Ball at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is a formal event recalling the romance and elegance of 19th century Vienna. The event is presented in duplicate each evening and is a much-anticipated fundraiser for music, service and international study scholarships for UW-Eau Claire students.
The Viennese Ball is for adults only. Patrons holding student-priced tickets must be age 17 or over and present a valid state-issued ID upon entering the event.
Tickets are $47.50 for the public or $30.00 for UW System students, Chippewa Valley Technical College students and high school students. The traditional midnight breakfast is $11 in advance or $12 at the ball.
Those who wish to purchase alcohol must present two forms of identification upon entrance to the ball. Patrons will be offered a hand-stamp should they wish to leave the building for the purpose of smoking.
Patrons are requested to honor the following dress code: evening gown or dressy evening separates for ladies; tuxedo or dress suit for gentlemen. Jeans and casual wear are inappropriate for the Viennese Ball.
