The Mayor's Ball

The Mayor's Ball
Please make plans to attend the Mayor’s Ball for the Art and Humanities, Friday, May 5th at 7:00 pm at the North Dakota Heritage Center. There will be a cash bar, hors d’oeuvres, music and yes, a little bit of fundraising. Tickets are $50 each. 


We will be auctioning off a GOLDEN TICKET, which will include tickets to many arts and cultural events held in our community throughout the year, including, but not limited to: a Gateway to Science Family Pass; Symphony Season Tickets for Two; BAGA Wine Taste Tickets; BAGA Festival of the Arts Tickets; Two all-inclusive tickets to 2018 Dakota Digital Film Festival; Northern Plains Dance Season Tickets; Downtowners Art & Wine Walk and Central Dakota Children’s Choir Season Tickets for Two.


We will also have two local artists creating ​PAINTINGS that will be auctioned off that evening. Paul Noot and Nicole Gagner are both featured in Bismarck's Art Alley  and Paul was recently honored with a 2017 Governor's Award for the Arts in Arts and Education. 


Wondering what to wear? We don't care! Tux, jeans, ball gown, business casual - we just want you to come and support this event. 


The Mayor's Ball, in Bismarck, ND, was created to recognize, support and promote the organizations that contribute to the culture of our community.

2017 is the inaugural year of the event. Every year, two non-profits will be chosen to receive the funds raised at the ball. We are happy to announce that Bismarck Arts and Galleries Association and Central Dakota Children’s Choir will be the recipients our first year.
