November 8, 2019 @ 6:00PM — 11:00PM
The Masquerade Mermaid Ball will be the inland ocean gala of 2019. Held in beautiful downtown Boulder, Colorado, we will celebrate our connection to the ocean and highlight that we can all make a difference, no matter where we live.
You don’t have to see the ocean to protect it. Inland states should have a voice in ocean protection since what we do inland has a direct impact on the sea—think about what we eat, the energy we use, and how we take care of our rivers and creeks, which all lead downstream to the ocean.
Through our chapters across the country, we engage political leaders, host events, and build inland ocean conservation communities to fight for ocean protection, watershed health, and against plastic pollution. Our chapters are involved in these issues at the local and national levels, helping to grow the inland ocean movement from coast to coast. The ocean is our planet’s life support system, and without a healthy ocean, there will be no us.
Join us for a night of celebration with delicious sustainably-sourced food, drinks, live music, dancing, silent auction, and of course, mermaids! Food will be provided by JAX Fish House, River and Woods, Corrida, Blackbelly, Acreage Farms, Santo, Seattle Fish Company, and Lucky's Bakehouse, with beer, wine, cocktails, and non-alcoholic beverages provided by Avery Brewing, Vapor Distillery, TRÄKÁL, and Rowdy Mermaid.
VIP tickets include a special happy hour with Congressman Joe Neguse and Lisa Wooninck, Policy Coordinator for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Marine Sanctuary Program.
Attire: Whimsical, oceanic, cocktail.
