We invite all of CMU's undergrads, graduate students, faculty, and alumni, as well as CMUBDC members and friends, to join us for this one-of-a-kind formal event. Wear your best gowns and suits for an evening of live jazz music, dancing, hors d'oeuvres, performances, and a chance to explore Phipps. Free dance lessons will be provided in weeks prior to the event.

Parking is free to Phipps guests in numbered spaces in the center island on Schenley Drive. Metered parking is also available on Schenley Drive in front of the Conservatory, and will be free. Ample covered parking is available at the Carnegie Museums, directly across the Schenley Bridge that connects Schenley Plaza to Phipps and Schenley Park.
At the Event
Scotch Ball is a dance event, and dancers are social people, so we encourage everyone to dance with everyone else! Please don't be offended if someone asks your date for a few minutes of their time :)
Our experienced dancers will be designated with white carnations, which is intended as a standing invitation to dance. So please, ask them for a dance! We guarantee they will not refuse.
Please hold on to your tickets! You will need them to enter Phipps on Friday night.
Unfortunately, we are sold out
of tickets for this year's Scotch Ball. If you did not get a chance to purchase one, we hope that you can join us for the event in future years!
