As the director of the Historic Mardi Gras Inn nestled in the vibrant heart of the French Quarter, I, Karen Brem, am absolutely thrilled to extend an exuberant invitation to one and all for the 39th Annual Bacchus Bash on Sunday, February 11, 2024. This isn’t just any party; it’s the epitome of New Orleans’ spirit and revelry, and it’s happening right on our doorstep!
Now, before we dive into the heart of this electrifying extravaganza, let me assure you that the Historic Mardi Gras Inn is your perfect home base for the weekend’s festivities. We may not promise you the moon, but we guarantee clean, affordable accommodations, a staff that’s as warm and welcoming as a Louisiana summer, and a location that puts you at the epicenter of Mardi Gras magic. You’ll be just a jovial jaunt away from all the weekend’s events, with no need for fairy godmothers or pumpkin carriages!
But let’s talk about the main course, shall we? The Bacchus Bash 2024 is not just a party; it’s a legendary 14-hour marathon of music, merriment, and the kind of memories you’ll be giggling about for years. Kicking off at noon at Generations Hall in the Warehouse District, this indoor/outdoor spectacle is a testament to the indomitable spirit of New Orleans.
Imagine multiple stages pulsating with the rhythms of the city’s finest local bands, each one ready to whisk you away on a musical journey through the heart of Mardi Gras. From the soulful melodies of jazz to the infectious beats of funk and everything in between, there’s a tune for every reveler to dance to. And the best part? It’s open to the public and absolutely FREE! Yes, you read that right. In a world where the best things in life are said to be free, the Bacchus Bash stands as a shining, shimmying example. Just to clarify: the admission and music is free, partygoers must buy their own drinks and VIP tickets for beverages, food, Grandstand seating, and an available restroom can be purchased online at Eventbrite.
Now, what’s a New Orleans bash without a little libation, you ask? Fear not, for the Bacchus Bash has you covered with an open bar that’s practically a love letter to Mardi Gras itself. Sip on some of the city’s most iconic drinks and special Mardi Gras concoctions that are sure to have you toasting to good times and new friends. Just remember to bring your festive spirit and maybe a pair of dancing shoes that can handle a marathon.
As for the performers lined up, let’s just say the roster is as dazzling as a Mardi Gras parade. While I can’t spill all the beans just yet (we do love a bit of mystery in New Orleans, after all), rest assured that the lineup includes some of the most electrifying acts in the local music scene. Each stage will be a portal to a different dimension of fun, ensuring that no two moments at the Bacchus Bash are ever the same.
So, whether you’re a seasoned Mardi Gras veteran or a wide-eyed first-timer, the Bacchus Bash is where you’ll want to be. It’s more than just a party; it’s a celebration of life, music, and the unbreakable spirit of New Orleans. And when you’re not out there getting your groove on, the Historic Mardi Gras Inn will be waiting to welcome you back with open arms and the kind of comfort that only feels like home.
So, pack your bags, bring your best festive attire, and get ready for an unforgettable experience at the 39th Annual Bacchus Bash. We at the Historic Mardi Gras Inn can’t wait to be part of your Mardi Gras story. Laissez les bons temps rouler! Let the good times roll!
