The Rose Ball was created by Princess Grace of Monaco in 1954. It is organised every year in March by the Monte-Carlo SBM Group in the prestigious Salle des Etoiles of the Sporting Monte-Carlo.
A social gathering
This exceptional event brings together the elite and international high society for the first important social event of the year. For just one evening, it bathes the Principality in splendour and lights, plunging it in an ambience of radiance and festivity.
Currently presided by H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince Albert II and H.R.H. Princess Caroline of Hanover, the Rose Ball is a symbol of glamour that maintains the fascinating Monte-Carlo legend that it has helped create. The aura is such that it attracts many people who wish to be part of the dream and enchantment of Monaco.
A Ball between tradition and modernity
A radiant spectacle in a fabulous decor, the Rose Ball has a different theme each year with artists and new trends. Big names help organise the creative aspects of the event, bringing their talents to life on the stage in an almost dreamlike ambience to the delight of spectators.
A fundraiser for the Princesse Grace Foundation
The Ball isn’t just a simple social event or another pretext to have a party. It is first and foremost an internationally recognised charity event with all proceeds and other exceptional prizes (sculptures, paintings etc.) going to the Princess Grace Foundation since 1964. This foundation’s vocation is to help people and children in need by developing humanitarian and philanthropic projects.
