The scarlet red carpet will be adorned with the members of the Joshua Tree Royal Ball Society, dressed in black & white desert formal, as they celebrate the spring equinox in grand style with Madame Harlequin on March 18, 2023 at the Hi- Desert Cultural Center in Joshua Tree. Wondering exactly what black & white desert formal means? It’s creative, glamorous, fancy, festy, or even funky—all conjured in black and white.
The event features live and DJ dance music, awesome heavy hors d’œuvres, decadent desserts, and fabulous prizes. There is a no- host cash/credit full bar featuring killer cocktails and mocktails, fabulous teas and coffee, bubbly champaign, water and more, to wet your lips. Before the dance music takes off, the ball opens with a ceremony honoring the spring equinox’s balance of day and night. Then the ball launches with Madame Harlequin on electric bass leading a live, funky jam band. DJ Uncle Abe keeps the dance floor hot with funky, disco, and EDM sets. Guests can win fabulous prizes for best dance moves, best dressed, and awards for silly games like the limbo. Crowns of Royalty of the Ball will be awarded for attire, dancing, and playful presence.
This is a member’s only private event—but not to worry—because the annual membership in the Joshua Tree Royal Ball Society is included in the ticket price! Royal Ball events will be held semi- annually near each equinox.
