Rites, Rituals, and Revelry: The History of Mardi Gras in New Orleans

533 Royal Street

Tours are available Tuesday–Sunday, January 6–March 1, 2019, at 11 a.m.

THNOC's popular Carnival-themed tour returns this year to the Louisiana History Galleries. "Rites, Rituals, and Revelry: The History of Mardi Gras in New Orleans" follows the city's traditions, beginning with celebrations during the French and Spanish colonial periods and in the early days of statehood. Using items from THNOC’s holdings, the guided tour continues through the development of parading krewes, like Comus and Rex, to the arrival of Social Aid and Pleasure Clubs and Mardi Gras Indians, and concludes with the modern era’s popular superkrewes and LGBTQ Mardi Gras celebrations.

Groups of five or more should contact Lori Boyer, (504) 598-7145; lorib@hnoc.org.
