Orpheuscapade

February 15, 2021

7pm till 3am

Ernest Morial Convention Center

Experience a side of Mardi Gras seldom seen by New Orleanians or visitors, and join us for the Orpheuscapade. This black tie event begins with live music and dancing until the magic moment when the gigantic floats arrive. As the entire parade rolls through the Convention Center, guests are showered with beads, doubloons, and other throws that fly fast and furious from the magnificent floats. Once the floats are inside, the music resumes, and dancing and merriment reign.
