Frequently Asked Questions


1. What should I wear?

Answer: The 2015 Oakland Symphony Ball is black tie optional. Our theme is Oakland Renaissance, which puts the period in the late 1920s and early 1930s. We loved themed dress, so feel free to go all out! Check out images of 1920s womenswear, 1930s womenswear, 1920s menswear, and 1930s menswear.

2. Where do I park?

Answer: Complimentary valet parking is included with your ticket to the Ball.

3. What’s for dinner? I have dietary restrictions!

Answer: Though the final menu is not yet determined, there will definitely be vegetarian options throughout the evening. Almost all dietary restrictions we know about in advance can be accommodated, so please include any and all of them on your online form or reply card.
