The Beaux Arts Ball is a Quincy tradition that first took place in 1930. It was sponsored by the Quincy Art Club and held at the Hotel Lincoln-Douglas. Since 1940, the Queen candidates have helped to sell tickets to the Ball. Over the years the people and places have changed numerous times, but the main focus of the Beaux Arts Ball has always been to support the arts in the community through the Quincy Art Center.
