Come one, come all of those most fiendish friends

…of the RMSC to a sinister celebration of rapscallions and reprobates, of blackguards and brutes!

Disguise yourselves as your favorite villains (or as your favorite goons) and join us this spooky season for an enchanting Ball honoring those characters we all love to hate! Dance, drink, and do no good (aside from treating the staff and premises well, lest we sic the flying monkeys on you)!

Event Highlights Include:

  • Exhibit your evil ensemble in our crooked (but entirely fair) costume contest hosted by Flower City Comic Con!
  • Flaunt your notorious knowledge in our treacherous trivia competitions
  • Witness bewitching builds and bone-chilling contraptions from the Rochester LEGO User Group!
  • Make malevolent moves on the dance floor while a DJ from Charismatic Entertainment keeps the party going into the depths of the dark night.
  • Discover dastardly deeds that occurred in Rochester through unique Collections displays.
  • Imbibe devilish drinks from our cash bars.
  • Explore our evil lair open houses, four distinct nefarious lairs, each chock full of activities that’ll give you a taste of being wicked:

Annihilation station

Haunted Woods
