Prime Time Parties
Get in the holiday spirit like never before, as the museum partners with the Ohio Renaissance Festival to party like it’s 1499!
Held in conjunction with our special exhibition Object of Devotion, you won't want to miss our Renaissance Ball. Break out your fanciest garb and come dressed for a festive night of food, fun, and characters right out of the 16th century.
As always, costumes are encouraged (but not required). Not sure how to get decked out? Click here for instructions to make a fast and easy D.I.Y. Renaissance-style Ruff, using a stapler, hole punch, scissors, ribbon and coffee filters!
ABOUT THE PARTY
More than a dozen performers from the Ohio Renaissance Festival,
including the Queen and her court, wandering minstrels, and musicians,
will take part in the festivities from 7-9 p.m. From 9-11 p.m., Liftoff
Entertainment will provide great music for dancing and a photo booth to
capture all the evening’s merriment!

Elite Catering (who supplied the yummy eats for this year’s Wizard of Oz and Studio 54 parties) has another fantastic special menu planned, including mini meatloaf cupcakes, turkey puff pastries, mini Tuscan chicken pot pies, smoked white cheddar risotto, grilled vegetables, mini apple cobblers, pecan tarts, pumpkin mousse and more. Great drinks are also part of the Prime Time Party mix. Heidelberg Distributing will be offering samples of their new Budweiser Project 12 beers, and The DAI’s resident mixologists will serve up themed cocktails and special drink offerings.
The Renaissance Ball raffle will feature many great prizes, including two jewelry items from the John Hardy Naga collection, donated by James Free Jewelers, the Official Jeweler of The DAI: a gold and silver bracelet valued at $595, and a gold and silver round drop pendant on chain necklace, valued at $995.
As part of the Renaissance Ball, the special exhibitions Object of Devotion and Elizabeth Turk: Wings will be open to guests during the party.
