Ballroom Marfa is Temporarily Closed
Following the recommendations of health officials regarding the potential spread of COVID- 19 (coronavirus), Ballroom Marfa will be closed to the public until further notice.
As a public organization that attracts international crowds, we must be sensitive to the risks that COVID- 19 poses to our small and remote town. We look forward to seeing you in the future.
