Georgetown University Diplomatic Ball

Georgetown University Diplomatic Ball The Georgetown University School of Foreign Service’s Diplomatic Ball is an annual black tie affair uniting students, faculty, and diplomats.
(1)

Taking place every spring at a prestigious location in Washington, D.C., the Diplomatic Ball is one of the most highly-anticipated events of the year. The Diplomatic Ball has recently been held in venues such as the Embassy of the Russian Federation, the Embassy of the Republic of France, the Old Postal Pavilion, and the National Building Museum. Inaugurated in 1925, the Diplomatic Ball has been known at various times as the Diplomat’s Ball and the Ball of Nations, but its purpose has always been to bring together individuals passionate about international affairs.

We want to thank you all for the excitement and interest in this year’s event, and we are deeply regretful for the disappointment. Please be assured that everyone will receive a full refund. Due to the large volume of tickets, this may take anywhere from 7-10 business days. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email [email protected].

Respectfully,
The Diplomatic Ball Planning Committee
