Due to slippery, wintery weather, the WGBY Masterpiece Ball is sliding out a week to Sunday, Jan. 27 from 5–10 p.m. at The Log Cabin in Holyoke.

WGBY wants to keep your dancing feet safe and ready to go. The decision to postpone the WGBY Masterpiece Ball was made in consultation with WGBY’s event partners, the venue, and in consideration for our guests, musicians, and volunteers.

Dress Up, Dine & Dance

Treat yourself like royalty with a fancy night out. WGBY’s 2019 Masterpiece Ball featured the theme: "Victoria" on Masterpiece

It’s a period gala featuring:

  • Victorian-Inspired Costume Contest
  • Champagne Reception with Vintage Dance Demonstrations
  • Scottish Procession with Pipes and Drums
  • Four-Course Dinner with Wine
  • Ballroom Dancing with 12-Piece Orchestra
    (Under the Direction of Jeffrey Holmes with special vocalist Dawning Holmes)
  • Silent Benefit Auction


Get into character. Part of the fun of the Masterpiece Ball is donning thematic garb (in this case, Victorian era-inspired attire). Make sure your fancy costume is dance floor-ready. Don’t be afraid to go all out either — there will be a costume contest.


Bring your appetite. The night will begin with a cocktail jazz reception, complete with hors d'oeuvres. Then, it’s on to a full, four-course meal with wine and sweet desserts. Preview the Menu »


Be ready to move. The 12-piece Masterpiece Ball Orchestra will inspire trained ballroom dancers and novice party boogiers alike to kick up their heels. Bring your dance shoes for an extravagant night of music and movement.
