Corporate Event Theme Party: Mardi Gras

Mardi GrasMardi Gras is only one month away, and while a trip to New Orleans may not be on your agenda, it’s still a perfect excuse to get your clients together for a festive event. Hosting a themed corporate event is also a great way to break from the regular happy hours that occur throughout the year. On top of that, after a tough winter Chicagoans are definitely ready for some bright and festive entertainment!

A corporate event may not be the first thing that pops into your mind when you think about Mardi Gras, but there are still plenty of ways to celebrate.

  • Host an event at a festive venue for Fat Tuesday (Carnivale, anyone?)
  • Spruce up a cocktail event with beads, masks and other décor
  • Pick a venue with authentic New Orleans food or a Mardi Gras themed menu
  • Cater authentic New Orleans food to another venue and mix in an interactive experience (whirlyball, Headquarters Beercade etc.)
  • Hire a group to provide unique entertainment like acrobatics, masked performers, stilted servers and more
  • Hire a jazz band or go to a jazz-themed venue
