the 42nd Annual Columbian Ball

Into the Unknown

An adventurous evening for inquisitive minds

The future holds tremendous promise for how we will work, play and live our lives. We don’t know what that future will look like, but that’s the fun!

On September 17, we'll celebrate the joy of discovering what tomorrow holds in store, and explore some of the futures that might await us. Join us at the Museum of Science and Industry for an evening dedicated to the thrill of the mysterious and the opportunities that await at the end of an unfamiliar path. Enjoy surprising performances that dazzle the eye and ear, exotic edible concoctions that unlock new sensations and live science that reveals the magic behind the natural world. For one night, your destination is completely unknown.

Will you join us?
