All about the fairy tale Grand Ball of Monte-Carlo in Venice

grand ball of monte-carlo

The Grand Ball of Monte-Carlo, taking place this month in Venice on the opening night of the International Film Festival, promises to be an event “bursting with glamour”. 

An event fit for royalty, the Baglioni Hotel Luna on the legendary Piazza San Marcos in Venice will be the scene for the Grand Ball of Monte-Carlo on 31st August. It is set to be a one-of-a-kind gala where guests become princes and princesses for a night and immerse themselves in a world of unparalleled luxury and fun.  


The ball, which will be taking place on opening night of the Venice International Film Festival, is a themed event, with the ladies asked to dress in sumptuous ball gowns and the men in white tie or ceremonial military uniforms.  

The organisers, Noble Monte-Carlo, sum up the spirit of the event, saying, “Sophistication, elegance, and ineffable aesthetic will fill the upcoming Grand Ball of Monte-Carlo. An exclusive gala for lovers of luxury and grand parties, for whom this is a truly unmissable occasion.” 


The red carpet really will be rolled out for guests, who can strut or saunter its length all the way to a welcome cocktail within the prestigious hotel.  

Entertainment will naturally be part of the evening, with singers, dancers, musicians and perhaps even the odd juggler set to perform with the sole intent of pleasing the crowds. The attendees will also partake in dancing after a magnificent five-course meal, and the night is likely to continue well into the wee hours of the next morning.  

The organisers have held several other events of this calibre, including last year’s Grand Ball of Princes and Princesses in Monaco and another in Dubai.
