Step back in time to the Golden Age of Mardi Gras!

Dress up and let loose on Bourbon Street as music from the Garfield Jazz trio wafts down from a balcony dripping with greens and sparkling with lights. Revel in the heat of samba with Tudo Beleza dance company.

Savor the flavor and cuisine of our special guest chef, Shawn Niles. Seen on “Master Chef,” known as “The Fat Pastor,” Shawn is creating a southern-based culinary experience that will warm your soul. This will be a five-star trip to NOLA for your taste buds.

Join us for a night of food, feathers, and pearls that celebrates the Golden Age of Mardi Gras. Your support at this event will go directly to sustaining and growing the artistic opportunities, performances and programs like Teen Express, that Open Space provides to the Vashon community. Art.
