The Meridian Ball is one of the most prestigious annual events in Washington, DC. Now in its 46th year, it brings together public and private sector leaders to celebrate Meridian’s ongoing efforts to global leadership through the exchange of ideas, people, and culture.
Traditionally held in October, the Ball is known for intimate Ambassador-hosted dinners, in addition to a dinner hosted by Meridian at its White-Meyer House. Following dinner, all guests gather for dancing, dessert, and dialogue at Meridian House, an architectural treasure listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Ball is well attended by public officials including Cabinet secretaries, Supreme Court justices, and members of the U.S. Congress, as well as prominent media figures, foreign ambassadors, and representatives from the international business and cultural communities.
Each year the Ball plays a key role in helping Meridian generate awareness of and support for its mission. Proceeds from the Ball support Meridian’s global leadership exchanges, cultural activities, conferences, and seminars.
