A Venetian Affair … Carnevale Returns!

By popular demand, Carnevale returns to Lake Merritt!

Can’t get to Italy this year for the world-famous Carnevale in Venice? Then join us for a spectacular celebration right here in Oakland at the beautiful Bellevue Club on Lake Merritt. On February 4th, you can take a gondola ride and then step into a palazzo right here on Lake Merritt for an afternoon of friendship, fashion, fascination. and fun!

This year we hope to bring back even more “Carnevale Celebrities” (the ones with plane tickets) as well as a wider range of eclectic, out-of-this-world creativity.  Your creative costume may be inspired by…

  • Historical Venetian
  • Past or Future Fantasy
  • Imaginative or Imaginary Cosplay
  • Exquisite, Artful Drag
  • Theatrical… or
  • Elegant Formal with a mask. (Masks are available for purchase at the event.)

Your playful hostesses: Leah Vass, OOH* and Kristen Caven, AAH**  will be joined by other Bellevue Club members to bring you a unique afternoon. Enjoy dancing from many eras, a unique exhibit of Venetian typography, literary readings on Venetian themes, a musical atmosphere of gaiety, and two seatings for high tea!
