Mardi Gras Lore

Mardi Gras began over a thousand years ago as a Christian interpretation of an ancient Roman celebration. This celebration was called Lupercelia and was a circus-like festival held in mid-February. Oddly enough, the name is derived from the Latin word 'Lupus' but the meaning as applied to the festival has become obscured over time.

Masquerade Contest

New Orleans has been celebrating Mardi Gras for hundreds of years, and masks have been an integral part its history. Click here to learn more about the Mardi Gras Masquerade tradition and mask ideas. 

Join us in showing your Mardi Gras spirit. We encourage all guests to wear masks until the crowning of the King and Queen. The individual with the best mask will win a special masquerade prize.

Where to Shop:

Present this coupon during check-out to receive 20% off.


 Mardi Gras Royalty

Each year, the King's Court Committee selects a Mardi Gras King & Queen for that year's Gala. The King & Queen are individuals who exemplify philanthropic royalty. Their generosity, dedication, and support towards both the Mardi Gras Gala and the fight against lupus is awe-inspiring and because of this, we hold the utmost respect for them.
