Pre-Parade Dinner Party Tickets

All paraders are invited — full members, honoraries and their entourage, group members, performers and foot soldiers — but to help us fund the food, get an accurate head count, and manage crowds we are requiring advance tickets for the pre-party.  ONLY PARADERS MAY PURCHASE TICKETS, but you may purchase additional tickets for your personal guests.


Child after-party ticket

Bourbon Orleans ballroom chandelierLast year we had planned our first ever ticketed after-party at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel, and our freezing rain delay turned it into pre-party with medieval music and a performance by Skinz-N-Bonez.  So many people told us they liked it better as a pre-party when we had more time and energy to enjoy it, that we are intentionally having a pre-party again this year instead of an after-party.  Medieval costumes are encouraged.  

Bourbon Orleans just behind the Cathedral has again generously given us their beautiful ballroom with balcony for our pre-party!  We’ll have king cake, a hot buffet supper, music and a cash bar.
