Krewe of Avant Garde’s 40th Anniversary Masquerade Mardi Gras Ball
February 3, 2023
Pensacola, FL – The Krewe of Avant Garde invites the community to their 40th Anniversary Masked Mardi Gras Ball at 6 p.m., Friday, February 3, 2023, at the Hilton Garden Inn Airport-Medical Center to show their support for our military and enjoy dancing with live band music by Wilk McKeen’s Dr. Breeze Band, dinner, fun, court program, and cash bar provided. Special salute to all our retired and active duty who have and are currently faithfully serving our country. Reservations are required for this formal, black tie 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. This year is the Krewe’s 40th Anniversary and will include a special salute to those who have and continue to serve our country. The Krewe participates in parades as a way to honor and support our troops as they fly our country’s flag and the flags of each branch 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 other festivities and 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 anyone who wants 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 server and have served in our military.”
The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a social hour followed by dinner, court presentation and mask program, and dancing. Event is free to paid Avant Garde members, and $60 for guests.
