Don your masks for a momentous night of revelry in the beautiful, historic Telfair Academy for its 200th anniversary! Presented by Telfair’s William Jay Society, this year’s Masquerade in the Mansion brings a unique Savannah theme to the annual soirée: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, a celebration of the city’s notorious characters and the novel’s intrigue while masked merrymakers mingle, dance, and explore Telfair’s original building in all its spooky splendor.

Enjoy unique entertainment, food, and decor including a photo booth plus music and dancing, libations, late-night treats, and lots of surprises, including a few special guests in honor of the 25th anniversary of “The Book” in the home of the iconic Bird Girl. This event is open to anyone at least 21 years old. Each admission ticket includes two drink tickets; additional drink tickets will be available for purchase. Attire is creative black tie. Proceeds from William Jay Society events support the museum’s educational outreach and general programming.
