The Viennese Winter Ball is back!

After a one-year hiatus, Ottawa’s most glamorous and magical social event, the Viennese Winter Ball, returns for its 19th year on Saturday, February 20th. Completely revamped and with a glorious new setting at Ottawa’s Westin Hotel, the event boasts a dance floor four times the size of previous years.

His Excellency, Arno Riedel, Ambassador of Austria to Canada, and Patron of the Ball, welcomes you to attend this modern fairy tale come to life.

“I am delighted and honoured to be the Patron of this very special event. I hope you will be able to attend…” said Ambassador Riedel.

We hope to see you back this year at this magical and glamourous cultural gala.
