Krewe of Avant Garde Mardi Gras Ball

The Krewe of Avant Garde invites the community to their annual Mardi Gras Ball at 6 p.m., Friday, February 15, 2019 at the Pensacola Yacht Club to show their support for our military and enjoy live music by Dr. Breeze, food, fun, and cash bar provided. Tickets are $30.00 each for non-members and can be purchased in advance or at the door via check for this black-tie and military dress optional event.

The Krewe of Avant Garde has been in existence since 1983 with the purpose to provide a visible military presence during the Mardi Gras festivities. The Krewe participates in parades as a way to honor and support our troops as they fly the flags of our Country and branches of our military services. Their float can be seen in the forefront of the Pensacola Mardi Gras parade, Veteran’s Day Parade, and Christmas Parade. Throughout the year, the Krewe hosts membership social events as part of the perks of joining the organization which can be viewed on their Facebook page – Krewe of Avant Garde.

The Mardi Gras Ball Chair, Dean Kirschner, comments, “Our Mardi Gras Ball is open to the public to come and see what our Krewe is all about. Although we honor our military, you do not need to be in the military to join our organization or participate in our events. We are a social organization – no speeches and no agenda other than to have fun and honor those who serve and have served in our military.” The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a social hour followed by dinner, program, and dancing.
