We’ve been closely monitoring the pandemic conditions and what they mean for our ability to produce Mardi Gras events that are both safe and fun. In addition to complying with all City public health orders and following CDC guidance, at this point, we have decided to implement further entry requirements to protect the health and safety of our guests, which are in line with current policies at other large entertainment venues in our region such as Enterprise Center and The Pageant.
We will continue to monitor pandemic information to guide our health and safety measures and could adjust as circumstances dictate.
Current COVID-19 Safeguards
Therefore, at this time, we are implementing new entry requirements for all indoor events produced by Soulard Mardi Gras. These include the Family Winter Carnival on January 22, the Cajun Cook-Off on February 12, the Mayor’s Ball on February 25, and on Grand Parade Day, February 26, the Bud Light Party Tent, Blues Alumni Tent, and all Mardi Gras Village tents on the east side of the 7th Street parade route. Other venues in Soulard operated by neighborhood bars or restaurants are not affected by these safeguards and each establishment makes its own entry requirements, in addition to any City orders which apply to everyone.
All guests age 12 and older at indoor events will be required for entry to either 1) provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination via a print or digital version of an official government-issued COVID-19 vaccination card listing the guest’s name and date the last dose was administered, or 2) a print or digital negative COVID-19 PCR or rapid test administered by a healthcare professional with 72 hours of entry, which includes the guest’s name and date the last test was administered. A photo ID will also be required to match and confirm vaccination and testing information with the guest’s identity.
