Yule Ball 2022

Yule Ball 2022

Presented by Awkward Nerd Events at Turner Hall Ballroom

Not only is it the 5th Anniversary of Milwaukee’s Yule Ball, but it’s also the 25th Anniversary of the publication of the first book in the Boy Wizard series! The Ballroom will be transformed in a way you’ve never seen it before. There will be new ways to engage, new things to experience, and new memories to make.

Wizards, witches, alumni, and magic students are all invited. All who attend are encouraged to wear their very best dress robes, fancy dresses, or other festive apparel.

New for this year

Friday: PRIDE Night! This evening will feature themed drag performances throughout the evening. Tip the Queens big because we’ll match whatever they collect in tips for a donation to Trans Lifeline.

Saturday: Our first ever Triwizard Tournament! Those who want to represent their school must purchase a ticket for it. Not to worry if you miss out on those, as we’ll have lots of ways for attendees to engage and support their school!
