    • Larry Souza February 27, 2019 at 9:30 pm #

      Will there be singing?

    • Ste February 28, 2019 at 4:51 pm #

      Aaahh!!! I live for this kind of event! I have an entire trunk full of faerie-themed costumery. Dress-up is my favourite game, and I never have enough excuses to play it. This would be such a wonderful break from school stress, a chance to channel the fae in myself before finals eat me alive.

    • Bailey Quillin Cooper March 1, 2019 at 10:25 am #

      Hope I’m not too late to comment here! I would absolutely love to win tickets to the ball because I am but a poor peasant. I’ve never been to this event before but I’ve been following the updates on Facebook for quite a while because it looks like so much fun! I even have an old rococo gown and powdered wig that I’ve been working on that I haven’t found a reason to wear yet.

    • Joy Martinello March 6, 2019 at 4:21 pm #

      We’re from a costume troupe called Risk of Change that performs at the Oregon Country Fair. We’d love to see what y’all are up to. I hope we win! Giant love and happy costumerie to all! <3

    I would like to attend because many of my friends are attending but my budget doesn’t really allow for it. I am working on a gown anyhow… you never really know. Well, I say gown.., it’s more like a tuxedo. In that it has pants. It’s pajamas. Enchanted formal pajamas. I still want to wear them out.

  33. Valerie Tillia February 27, 2019 at 6:48 pm #

    Oh my gosh this sounds AMAZING! I have my ears and wings ready! I hope I win

    • Tedd February 28, 2019 at 10:25 pm #

      I’m the one bringing trees to decorate the ballroom, so if I can score a pair of tickets for meself and me lovey, that would be pretty cool.

  34. Elissa February 27, 2019 at 7:00 pm #

    It’d be a ball if I could attend! Would be great to escape into a fantasy world for an evening and to admire amazing costumes, music and entertainment! Thanks for the chance.

  35. Anna February 27, 2019 at 7:04 pm #

    “mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?” Me….in that green dress that gathers dust in my closet. This princess needs a night in the forest and out of the research lab!

  36. Nicole Nowlin February 27, 2019 at 7:17 pm #

    This would be a blast!

  37. Sarah Brady February 27, 2019 at 7:20 pm #

    What fun!! Please pick me! I am obsessed with all things Celtic AND magic.
    I have just returned from my first trip to Ireland and am already planning another! My fiery red hair, silly sense of humor and terrible dance moves will add to the ambience of the party. I have a dress all ready to go and can’t wait to be there with bells on (quite literally) ❤️ ☘️

  38. Kelsey Bat February 27, 2019 at 8:15 pm #

    My husband and I would love to attend! I’ve been looking for more magical events to attend, and new friends!!

  40. Neala Cox February 27, 2019 at 8:45 pm #

    I love these type of events, it’s a time to step out of the real world and be anything you can dream of.

  41. Kathryn February 27, 2019 at 9:08 pm #

    Because I need somewhere to wear my steampunk raven costume….

  42. Lisa February 27, 2019 at 9:22 pm #

  44. Barbara Ball February 28, 2019 at 9:46 am #

    I would LOVE to win tickets for my boyfriend and I to attend! We had heard about it but due to Wizard World and Emerald City com icons we weren’t able to afford to go! We have some awesome costumes like Poison Ivy who we would LOVE to bring!! Fingets crossed!! We would be so excited and grateful if we got tickets!! ♡

  45. Desiree February 28, 2019 at 9:48 am #

    Would love to go!

  46. Alexis Carroll February 28, 2019 at 10:05 am #

    I would love to go to make new fae friends and wearing something magical! <3 who doesn’t love a good ball? Throw in fantasy forest theme and it’s even better! I’d love the chance to take my guy of seven years on a romantic, fae themed date.

  47. Jamie Lillethun February 28, 2019 at 1:36 pm #

    What an amazing experience this would be. Hi there…I won a pair of the last tickets to the music fest in Portland but couldn’t go due to illness. This would be a lifetime opportunity and I actually would have a sitter for my ASD kiddos. Raising 2 special needs kids can take a toll on one’s personal and social life and these two things are needed to keep a parents mind at ease. These tickets would be used by myself and my partner as a nice little mental retreat and hey…COSTUMES TO BOOT. YAY I hope I win

  48. Jessica February 28, 2019 at 4:52 pm #

    I want to dress up with my fiancé and dance the night away in Fantasy with my friends!

  49. Claudia February 28, 2019 at 4:53 pm #

    I’d love to win tickets for this!

  52. Heidi King February 28, 2019 at 6:02 pm #

    I can’t wait for this event!

  53. Tristann February 28, 2019 at 6:04 pm #

    This sounds like a truly magical event. I would love to win tickets for me and my husband: a chance to dress up, attend a fantasy ball, and have an enchanting, romantic evening out.

  54. Anna Vigil February 28, 2019 at 6:15 pm #


  55. Kacy February 28, 2019 at 6:16 pm #

    Oooh!! I always secretly want to dress like a forest nymph and frolic around so what a good excuse to go for it and bust out the glitter

  56. Rebecca February 28, 2019 at 7:05 pm #

    Last year was so much fun, it would be lovely to go again–even Mr “I don’t play dress-ups But I can go as a Lumber Jack” wanted to come again! ;-)

  57. Ron T. March 1, 2019 at 12:10 am #

    Attending the Enchanted Forest Ball sounds like a reading from some of my favs in authors, allowing my imagination
    to wander. At least, I think it’s my imagination… Please pick me.

  58. Steven Y. March 1, 2019 at 8:20 am #

    My wife reeeeealy wants to go, and I want to make her happy!

  59. Annmarie March 1, 2019 at 2:56 pm #

  63. Deborah Brucks March 22, 2019 at 8:19 pm #

    sounds totally amazing something new comers to the area would totally enjoy. I love to dress up as does the hubby in garb and dance the night away. It sounds like it will be an amazing time had by all. A musketeer and his lady would love to come and join the night and meet some new friends.
