The 1920s was a transformative decade and brings to mind fringed fashions, soaring steel architecture, iconic dance moves, the art deco movement, the rhapsodious music of the jazz age, secretive indulgences in hidden speakeasies, and a general air of optimism and living life to the fullest. A century later, let’s Lindy Hop together into our own Roaring 20s in a transformational way through a scaled down version of our beloved Telfair Ball.

On May 8th, the Telfair Ball Grande Finale Dinner will be open to 100 guests who will be asked to observe socially distanced protocols throughout the vast spaces of the high-ceilinged Telfair Academy. Guests will be spread throughout the Academy’s Rotunda, Sculpture Gallery, and Exhibition spaces, offering an intimate, vibrant, and distinctive experience. Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and will be offered this year at a premium to maximize this crucial fundraising effort. We hope you will consider joining us!

Telfair Ball Grande Finale
Saturday, May 8 at 6:00pm
Telfair Academy | 121 Barnard Street

Tickets*: $1,500 per person

Attire is Black Tie. 

To purchase tickets, please contact Lauren Grant at grantl@telfair.org or 912.790.8866.

*All tickets are non-refundable. In the event the Grande Finale must be postponed due to prevailing public health protocols at the time, every effort will be made to reschedule the event. If we are unable to find a workable new date within a reasonable timeframe, your ticket purchase will become a 100% tax-deductible donation to Telfair Museums. Thank you!

If you do not plan to attend the Ball in 2021, we hope you will consider making a gift toward the Ball’s Fund-a-Need. Monies raised through this year’s creative approach will provide crucial general operating support to Telfair Museums, allowing us to continue serving our community with art, educational and programmatic initiatives, outreach, exhibitions, and innovative virtual content to strengthen engagement with our members wherever they are. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
