Art & Souls XX: 20th Annual Masquerade Ball

XX-press your creativity!

XX-press your spooky side!

XX-press yourself!

We’re celebrating Halloween past, present, & future!

Cotuit Center for the Arts is back this Halloween season for the 20th anniversary of our famous Annual Masquerade Ball! This year, we’re celebrating Halloween past, present, & future. Art & Souls: XX will take place on Saturday, October 30 at 7:30pm. The party will feature DJ Ian Lee at the turntables, dancing in our spacious Main Theater, and ‘bone-chilling’ refreshments at our cash bar!

If past Art & Souls Balls are any indication, a multitude of hilarious, frightening, and delightfully creative costumes will be in attendance. Many attendees make their own costumes, ranging from the very simple to the intricately crafted. Couples and groups are encouraged to develop themed costumes. “But, you don’t have to have an elaborate or handmade costume to have fun,” says Michelle Law, coordinator of the ball and a member of CCftA’s curatorial committee. “A mask or make-up will get you into the party mood too.”

Law is happy to give costume hints. She says that many people find inexpensive costume materials at vintage stores and consignment shops. “Do take into account safety considerations,” she says. “Make sure the costume does not restrict your movement or your vision.”

Prizes will be awarded for “Most Original,” “Best Classic Halloween-Inspired,” and “Best Group” costumes. In keeping with the theme of past, present, and future, send us old photos of yourself in favorite costumes from past Halloweens—then look for them in a video montage broadcast above the dance floor!

Proof of vaccination or negative COVID test is required to attend. For more information, and to purchase tickets, visit or call 508-428-0669. Cotuit Center for the Arts is located at 4404 Falmouth Road/Route 28 in Cotuit.
