PEERS EVENTS

           

 

We are delighted to be able to start holding events once again. All events will follow the health guidelines of Alameda County that are in effect at the time of the event. Due to the pandemic attendance will be limited, and tickets will only be sold in advance. No tickets will be available at the door. For the near future there will be no food or snacks served at PEERS events. As attendance is limited, tickets cannot be refunded, only transferred. Proof of Covid19 vaccination is required, no one will be admitted without such proof.

Tickets for events can be purchased by following the links to the events below.  Yearly subscriptions are available.

Period Events and Entertainments Re-Creation Society, Inc. 

 

 

The Period Events & Entertainments Re-Creation Society, Inc., is a Nonprofit Corporation dedicated to remembering, researching, and re-creating the performing arts of the past.

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, we endeavor to accomplish our noble goals by sponsoring events, giving classes, performing in various living history events, and just generally carrying on. Historic dance, drama, music, literature and costume are all a part of PEERS’ activities. More than anything else, we are dedicated to the idea of entertainment as something for people to do rather than watch.

The main activities of PEERS have traditionally centered around our historical and literary re-creation events. These have covered a wide number of historical periods and have included such diverse events as a Canterbury Tales Feast & Ball, a recreation of Lord Capulet’s Ball from Romeo and Juliet, an outdoor Restoration Fete and Ball, an 18th-Century Scarlet Pimpernel Ball, a Mostly Mozart Ball set in the Amadeus universe, a Hamilton Ball, a Jane Austen Tea, Fete and Assembly, a Phantom of the Opera Masquerade Ball, a Sherlock Holmes Mystery Party and Ball, an Edwardian Music Hall, a bi-lingual Moulin Rouge Ball, a Tango Tea, a 1920’s Speakeasy, a 1930’s Mystery Party, a 1941 Evening in Casablanca, a Film Noir Black & White Ball, a variety of Victorian Balls and our famous annual Le Bal des Vampires. As a change of pace we also give fantasy and science fiction-themed costume balls set in a galaxy far, far away, on Middle Earth, on starships bound for adventure, and in historical times visited by a certain time-traveling Doctor.

How do you participate in the activities of PEERS? First of all, by coming to our events. You may purchase tickets on our website or by mail or subscribe for a year’s worth of events. If you’d like to be on our electronic mailing list, just send a message to us at peers@peersdance.org. And, of course, like all nonprofit organizations we are happy to accept donations. Donations may be made by check or via PayPal, and PEERS is also registered with eScrip.

 

 

When you attend a PEERS event, you have a great deal of flexibility in how to participate. Many people dress up in appropriate costumes, but many do not. Some people choose to portray particular historical or literary characters; others simply come to enjoy themselves. The choice is yours. Remember the cardinal rule of PEERS: If you’re having fun, you’re doing it right!
