Mardi Gras Dance Party
February 6, Garfield Center for the Arts
Bar opens at 7PM — Start rockin' at 8PM
While New Orleans is packed for Mardi Gras,
we’re rockin’ out right here in Chestertown.
And the most exciting event of the day-long celebration is the finale,
a knock-your-socks-off dance party at the Garfield.
KING CAKE will be served!
Two great New Orleans style R&B bands —
The Dixie Power Trio, back by popular demand for their fourth straight year,
and our own Alligators, who electrified the biggest crowd ever
at their high-energy concert in Fountain Park last summer.
And with two spectacular bands, the fun never stops.
If you’re not a big dancer, grab a drink or free lemonade at the bar, head to the balcony
and groove to an awesome concert while watching a dazzling spectacle of
costumed dancers rockin’ to the rhythms below.
So grab your beads, feathers and most outrageous mask
(or not) and join the fun!
Tickets are on sale now at the Garfield's website
It’s also the best bargain of the year, at $25 for two great bands, STUDENT discount with ID $15.
(plus a highly entertaining floorshow of dancing neighbors)
or $30, if you’d like to include a $5 donation to the “Backpack” program,
which provides weekend meals for local needy children.
The fire Marshall limits the number of party-goers and
you don’t want to miss this entertaining extravaganza.
See you there!
