Central Florida WItches Ball 2022

ORLANDO, FLORIDA/ Florida’s premiere horror convention, Spooky Empire, in association with Tea and Tarot Emporium and Events and StoryTailors present the Central Florida Witches Ball, with a gothic dance party and live stage show this October at the Orlando Convention Center called Saturday’s Song.


Saturday’s Song will be an energetic and entertaining look into the gothic world of the witches hosting the 2022 Central Florida Witches Ball, as they welcome their newest initiates from covens across the land. It will be a night to test the abilities of these apprentices, and to celebrate their induction into the Conclave … but there are whispers of a big, bad darkness brewing in the shadows. Will the Conclave’s circle remain unbroken? Will the recruits survive the challenges they'll face as they race to join this secret society of Witches? Or will Lady Saturday—the Blood Witch—get the last laugh … or bite?


Saturday’s Song will be performed by professional actors from the Central Florida area, and will feature fun characters, rocking songs, high-octane dance, thrilling aerial acts, intense combat, mystifying magic, and more, as it details the backstory of both the Witches Ball and the eerie enchanters that present it.


The production will be presented twice during the Spooky Empire Convention and will be held in the West Hall F– Room 4 in the West Concourse of the Orlando Convention Center. On Friday, Oct 21, from 8pm – 11pm, attendees can enjoy the show, exclusive vendors, drink specials, and a DJ spinning gothic dance music at the afterparty. On Sunday, Oct 23, from 12pm – 2pm, a discounted rate will allow guests to attend the show only.


Additionally, there will be a late-night Witches Cabaret on Saturday, Oct 22, from 11:00PM to sometime past the witching hour, where the colorful cast of conjurors will sing, dance, and make all sorts of mischief. Admission to the Witches Cabaret is bundled with tickets to the Spooky Empire VIP Party or can be purchased separately.


Spooky Empire has been delivering the best sights, sounds and screams to Halloween lovers since 2003. A rock n roll, horror, Halloween, tattoo, and film festival all rolled into one monstrous event, Spooky Empire is the ultimate convention weekend for fans that enjoy the dark side of comic con!
