Ernst Cafe Bacchus Bash 2015 Organizers Expect More Than 5,000 People
NEW ORLEANS – Organizers of the Ernst Cafe Bacchus Bash announced the all-star musical lineup that will perform at this year’s Mardi Gras celebration.
Bacchus Bash is a festive, day-long party that precedes the renowned Bacchus parade, and event organizers expect more than 5,000 people to attend the event at Generations Hall which is located at 310 Andrew Higgins Dr.
Dating back to the 1980s, Bacchus Bash was held at Ernst Café on S. Peters St., but in 2012 the festivities moved to Generations Hall, offering Bacchus Bash more space to entertain guests. The day-long celebration offers patrons the option to watch the super krewe of Bacchus in VIP fashion.
