Victorian Valentine Ball 2020

Thank you to all who attended!

San Francisco Heritage presented our annual Valentine-themed fundraiser with an emphasis on a late 19th century approach to love, courtship, social etiquette, music and entertainment.

Guests learned to dance the 19th-century form of the waltz in our beautiful Ballroom, enjoyed a buffet of savory finger foods and indulged in sugary treats at the candy bar, and learned about love and courtship from the perspective of someone living in the Victorian age through our trivia game.

VENUE: Haas-Lilienthal House
