Southern Decadence 2014: NOLA’s Gay Mardi Gras Festival!

southern-decadence-new-orleansSouthern Decadence is all about the extravagant costumes, rainbows and partying that accompanies the holiday, and one that has been nicknamed the “Gay Mardi Gras.” This year the event will celebrate 43 years in New Orleans with its usual non-stop street party in the French Quarter, with ‘Ground Zero’ for the action at the intersection of Bourbon and St. Ann streets. The festivities will start on Wednesday, August 27 and pick up steam as the event nears the big street parade on Sunday, August 31, at 2pm.
The theme this year is ‘Under the Big Top,’ and the colors are Canary Yellow, Turquoise Blue, and Pearl White. The 2014 Official Charity is PFLAG, an organization comprised of family, friends, and straight allies of GLBT organizations.
The celebration will then wrap up on Monday, September 1 with the Southern Decadence Closing Party at the Bourbon Pub. For an event that started as a mere costume party, it’s grown into one of the most famous gay celebrations in the world. At the intersection of elaborate costumes and high fashion, we say: ‘Let the partying begin!’
Sully Mansion is a great place to relax after a day at the festival. We offer modern amenities in a classic Garden District location. We welcome your booking or inquiry.
