ABOUT

Horned Ball is the longest running event of Kostume Kult (Costume Cultural Society), a non-profit arts org supporting costume art, street theater and mad fun while bringing wonderful people together. Horned Ball is Kostume Kult’s annual spring bacchanal where the animals shake off winter slumber with a multitude of horns and an urge to dance. As we experiment with this new reality, 2020 will be virtual but foresee international “social-casting” live events as an ongoing feature hereafter. And yes, this year’s virtual event flyer is a re-work from Horned Ball 2015- “Enter the Funderdome”s post-apocalyptic theme… It seemed time for another **Funpocalypse**!!  With your help!…
