About Endless Night

THE ENDLESS NIGHT VAMPIRE BALL™ events are a series of masquerade ball themed soirees produced by Father Sebastiaan which began in New York City in 1996 with the “Vampyre Ball of New York” and the “Main Gala Event”, the New Orleans Vampire Ball, over Halloween weekend. The name Endless Night comes from the William Blake poem “Auguries of Innocence” in which he states “Some are born to Sweet Delight, Others are born to Endless Night.”

In 2010 Endless Night: New Orleans Vampire Ball was rated #1 of the Big Halloween Events in the world by TripAdvisor.com.

“Endless Nights is best described as a Venetian Masquerade Ball and vampire court, mixed with a Vampire Court, the energy of a rock concert and the elegance of a burlesque cabaret.”

What makes the Endless Night most unique is the vampire and masque ball theme touched off with a Belle Epoch salon noir from the esoteric renaissance of 1890s France. Always changing and morphing according to new and diverse interests Endless Nights is purely a unique experience which is unforgettable.
