The Moonlight Ball presents Moonlight Academy which will be held Friday evening, the 26th of May, 2017, at the Airport Holiday Inn Hotel (970 Dixon Road, Rexdale, Toronto, ON M9W 1J9) starting at 8:00 PM.
New this year! For the first time ever the Moonlight Ball now accepts Friday, Saturday, or Sunday daily passes, as well as weekend passes to purchase tickets, for those who are arriving to the convention late on the Friday!
This Year the Moonlight Ball transforms into the Moonlight Academy! We invite everyone to our first ever Cultural Festival! This evening of Food, Games, Fun, Amazing Prizes, and our class Photo Booth is all apart of the Academy's 12th annual end of year dance, the Moonlight Ball! Enjoy our many games and booths made by the various clubs. Visit the Magic Club's fortuneteller to discover your fate, challenge yourself with the Paranormal Club's haunted house, and enjoy performances by the Sports and Cosplay Clubs! The Moonlight Ball will be held Friday, May 26th, starting at 8 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Toronto International Airport (970 Dixon Road closest to the airport).
Tickets are $40 each and are now available through online pre-registration. Only 500 Ball tickets in total are available. If any tickets are left over, they will be sold at the convention prior to the ball and at the door (at con ticket sales are not guaranteed).
Special Events and Requests
A shuttle bus will be running between The Delta (formerly the International Plaza) and Sheraton before arriving at the Holiday Inn hotel from 7:30 PM to 1:00 AM on Friday, the night of the Ball.
Bring your ticket or purchase confirmation and your Anime North membership badge with you on the shuttle. Your Anime North membership badge must be worn during the event. We will take ticket stubs and stamp hands for re-entry to allow guests to use the washrooms located outside the Plaza Ballroom.
Note: It is your responsibility to read the following dress code description. This is to make sure that your clothing complies. Don't be one of the people we have to turn away because of improper wardrobe!
The Moonlight Ball is a semi-formal costume ball, so we encourage attendees to come in costume. Each year we award prizes to two Best Individual Costumes and Best Group/Couple. Everyone in costume is eligible!
Last year we were amazed by the calibre of dress and beautiful costumes that guests wore to the Ball.
We offer attendees two choices in what to wear:
- Formal/semi-formal attire
Some examples of attire which attendees should not wear:
- Sneakers, running shoes, sports sandals, dirty or poor condition footwear.
- Streetwear such as blue jeans, cut-offs, t-shirts, sweatshirts, khakis, or sport shorts.
- Streetwear costumes.
- Swimwear, bikinis, or "strategically placed fur" costumes
However, all of these cases can be turned into a ballroom-style costume! Think of what the character would wear to a ball, or what you imagine that character to wear, or transform the outfit into a formal one.
Note: While blue jeans are not acceptable, black dress jeans in good condition would be acceptable if paired with a dress shirt.
Once again this year the Moonlight Ball will have our Video Contest! Bring your camera to the Ball.
Consider that you want to attend the Ball and you want as many people to come with you as possible. However, you need to convince them first. How do you go about doing that? You've decided that the best way is to show them a video of just how great it is!
Remember, you're trying to convince your friends to go with you!
