Join the FJC for drinks, dancing and debauchery at our annual masked celebration—CIRQUE: Empire. This year’s post-prohibition theme transports guests from Detroit’s wintry streets to a sultry 1930’s speakeasy, in honor of the museum’s upcoming Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo in Detroit exhibition. In between live music and entertainment, guests of this formal affair will be treated to cocktails, late-night bites, decadent desserts, as well as the event’s anticipated masquerade competition, the winner of which will receive a handcrafted prize from Epiphany Glass. Celebrate FJC’s 50th year as an auxiliary!

Chairs: Elanah Nachman Hunger, Rob Belloni and Blake Ellis
