Come celebrate the god of wine, revelry,and ecstasy and his Mardi Gras parade in the most Pagan way possible… a Bacchanal!
Académie Gnostique will be hosting this event and will act as a base camp while we carry our debauchery to the streets to watch the parade. We will also invite the god himself to participate, so be prepared. ;-)
$10 at the door.
Food will be available.
Donation Bar on site.
Togas, leopard print, maenads, and satyrs are highly, highly encouraged. (There may be a prize for the best, most authentic, and elaborate costume.)
**Inhibitions must be checked at the door. **
**Flesh rending is discouraged.**
**Please keep exposed flesh legal.
**People are welcome to bring their kids, but be forewarned. There will be alcohol, adult partying, and heavy use of incense.**
***Parking close to the school will be challenging. So plan ahead. We suggest parking on the CBD side of Canal and and far enough so that you will not be trapped in traffic, then walk in.***
***Do not rely on the streetcars on the 11th. Parades will be running all day along St. Charles, so there is a chance that they may not run at all, or run sporadically. That also applies to the buses.***
***Uber and Lyft may only pick up and drop off in specific areas. Check with them before utilizing them.**
