Come join us at our Mardi Gras Party!

We are raising money to produce the 2023 Alexandria Saint Patrick’s Day Parade on March 4th, 2023. So this is an excellent opportunity to sample some Bourbon Street festivities here in Alexandria Virginia with your friends and join the great people that support the 40th Alexandria Saint Patrick’s Day Parade.

Plan on enjoying light appetizers, sampling some great libations, dancing, and sharing the celebration with your friends. See you there!
