thank you all for your sweet support!
we gather to celebrate the mills, our shared history, the mighty Saco river and the strong people who grace her shores. sweet music, smooth moves and moments of pure joy wonder will sparkle in the crisp autumn air - perfect for a lil' funky bow tie and dash of intrigue.
this year the Biddeford Ball will be masquerade! so don your mask to dance the night away to chris humphrey’s big band while dining on delectable delights from custom deluxe, biscuits & co along with the chef and the gardner and warm seafood bisque from sea salt lobster. we band together with hoppy brews from banded horn and funky bow along with a special cocktail made with bimini gin from round turn distilling… french wine from devonish and good spirits will swirl and flow. we will welcome you with african drum and dance led by embody the rhythm so don't be late. ballroom dancers and performers throughout the evening will dazzle and inspire! as the night deepens prepare to dig down to our roots.
the biddeford ball is a fundraiser with the goal of bringing people together in a common cause. proceeds from this year's ball will be used to illuminate the iconic brick smoke stack that defines the saco/biddeford skyline and raise awareness and jump start fundraising for the biddeford mills museum.

dress code: we call it Funky Bow as this is Biddeford folks so really anything goes! be comfortable, wear what you love, go over the top and formal to the nines or keep it casual and fun. this is not meant to be a costume ball but we would love to see some folks go in full masquerade. we will have masks available for sale at the ball or you can paint one on. or if you really don't want to hide just a bit then come as you are!
