Experience a side of Mardi Gras seldom seen in Baton Rouge… the Annual Krewe of Artemis Soiree!!
Due to our ever increasing membership, the event sells out every year! The Soiree is held at the Raising Cane’s River Center in the Exhibition Hall. The Soiree is unlike any other Mardi Gras event in Baton Rouge. This black tie evening begins with the introduction of the past Kings and Queens of Artemis. The unique Artemis Float Lieutenant Parade follows with a sometimes irreverent salute to this year’s parade. Immediately following, the Officers of the Krewe are presented along with a formal presentation of the Royal Court in full Mardi Gras regalia.
After the presentation of the King and Queen Artemis, the honored guests of the Royalty are presented. The entire Royal Court participates in the traditional “Grand March” and toasts to the King and Queen are offered. Finally, the entire Royal Court exits with an audience favorite….Second Line!!!
Join us in experiencing the full flavor of all that is Baton Rouge Mardi Gras!
