Costume College 2024: Gala Red Carpet

Did you miss us? Because we’ve missed you! The Red Carpet is BACK, Darlings! Come join us Saturday evening to walk the Red Carpet as your grand entrance to the Gala!

Find the Red Carpet Hosts wearing red sashes to direct you to your grand entrance in the Gateway Pre-Function lobby of the Hotel where you can then strut your stuff and show off for the paparazzi and friends alike.  

The Red Carpet walk is open to all Costume College attendees, teachers, and volunteers, regardless of costume or experience. You do NOT need a Gala ticket to participate. This event is open to the public for viewing. Your picture and video will be taken and may be posted on the internet. (CGW’s Photography Policy is available at

This year we are excited to announce a videographer to film everyone’s runway walk. A compilation video will be created and shared after the event so you can enjoy the Red Carpet all over again.
Not interested in walking down the Red Carpet, but would like to see the wonderful costumes? We encourage you to join the evening’s excitement. Gather along the length of the Red Carpet to applaud your fellow costumers or bring your cameras to the “paparazzi'' section to take photos.

As always, there will be a bypass lane around the Red Carpet. Please be mindful not to block this lane for any reason, as it is also for staff use and fire safety. Please remember to follow the posted Red Carpet etiquette for the enjoyment of all. Be courteous to our guests and do not halt them for photos on their journey: We have 300 or more dignitaries in fabulous outfits to view in a mere 60 minutes!
