Save the Date: Space and Science Fiction Masquerade Ball, Oct. 24

Written by: developer

The ever popular Halloween costume ball returns to the Space Foundation Discovery Center, but with some exciting changes this year.

We have teamed up with GalaxyFest to present the Space and Science Fiction Masquerade Ball, with proceeds benefiting science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.

The ticket price includes hors d’oeuvres and two tokens that can be used for drinks, with cash bar also available. Wear your favorite costume for the costume contest, or come in an elegant masquerade.

There will be contests and prizes throughout the night, as well as classic sci-fi productions and a photo bar for your social media postings. The Discovery Center’s Mars Robotics Laboratory will also be available to challenge guests driving skills on the simulated Martian terrain. 

Tickets may be purchased online for $35 per person, or $60 per couple. This event is for adults, 21+. Purchase tickets here.

The Space Foundation Discovery Center is located at 4425 Arrowswest Drive in Colorado Springs, just off of Garden of the Gods Road. For information, call 719.576.8000.
