Mayor’s Mardi Gras Ball

Friday, February 9, 2024 

Time: 7:00 pm to Midnight 

The Midway at St. Louis Union Station 

The Mayor’s Ball, which ALIVE Magazine and the Riverfront Times have called the “social event of the season,” is a must-attend gala that combines the elegance of the setting with the striking visuals of Mardi Gras. It features fine cuisine, cocktails, dancing and entertainment ranging from traditional to spectacular including: 

  • Live music by Dirty Muggs and Funky Butt Brass band
  • DJ Mahf 
  • Pancake Art by The Joy of Pancakes

  • 360 Photobooth by Megalux

  • Aerial Acts throughout the event! 

This charitable event is hosted by the Mardi Gras Foundation, and the proceeds go to create community grants that have shown demonstrable benefits to the Soulard and Downtown communities since 2003.
