A holiday spectacle of dazzling lights, festive music, and dancing that will bring back the feeling of Christmas, just like the ones ‘you used to know!’
Watch the most iconic films of the 40’s/50’s come to life as you sip a holiday cocktail and wander through The Columbia Inn and Novello’s Night Club! You are going to feel just like you are in these legendary movies!
We’ll have a re-creation of the stage from White Christmas for our main stage at the Ball with barn doors, massive Christmas trees…
We’ll also have a re-creation of the entrance to the Columbia Inn, Pine Tree, Vermont, along with a Count Your Blessings fireplace lounge area! On top of that we’ll have the WWII Stage Scene from the movie where Bing sings White Christmas!
And make sure to talk with our 1940’s film stars that will be at the event this year! (The Haynes Sisters, Wallace and Davis) …they will have special clues and will tell you where to visit in the event that will lead you to solve mysteries and winning prizes!
The best part? You’ll be celebrating this cherished era for a great cause! The 1940s Ball donates a portion of ticket sales to non-profits close to our hearts. We’re proud to have donated over $102,000 to our charities.
Book a room at the venue, get ready at our hotel and stay the night! We have a discounted rate of $155 per room (these rooms sell quickly so book early).
Except for Reserved Seating, this is not a seated event, however we will have plenty of table seating for dinner and to rest in between dancing and enjoying the activities throughout the event, on a first come first serve basis. These seats are not meant to sit throughout the event to watch the stage performances and cannot be reserved. If you require a seat throughout the event, we recommend reserved seating.
We will have a section of chairs by the stage for seniors over 65 on a first come first serve basis. There will also be room here for handicap seating.

If you would like a reserved table for your party to sit at throughout the event, we have limited 2-10 person shared tables. Please see reserved pricing above.
NOTE: If you are bringing a WWII veteran please email email@example.com to have them registered to be a special honoree. They will be honored from the stage and receive special comped VIP seating (guests accompanying WWII Veteran will need to purchase tickets).
We strongly advise 1940‘s and 50‘s holiday themed evening attire, party dresses and/or uniforms. Actual vintage dress is best, however if you cannot find period attire to wear, women can wear a modern dress that is cut like those from the era with vintage accents such as vintage jewelry and/or a flower in their hair and men can wear a modern suit that looks similar to those of the era with accents like a fedora, suspenders or a bow tie.
