Carnival season is a favorite time of year for locals and tourists of Southern Louisiana. The Mardi Gras celebration often includes several events leading up to day of Fat Tuesday such as balls hosted by local krewes, dinners honoring kings and queens, teas, brunches, and of course, parades!
As part of its celebration this season, Le Pavillon debuted some of its custom-made masks, mini-floats, and decorations at this year’s Past Kings’ Dinner for the Order of the Troubadours. The dinner was catered by Brian Blanchard of Imonelli, and was held in the Lafayette room. The room comfortably seated approximately 46 guests who were served a four-course meal beautifully prepared and serviced by Blanchard’s team.
If you, or a krewe or organization for which you are a member, are looking for a new venue to host a ball, gala, dinner, or any type of private function for next carnival season, please consider Le Pavillon as the perfect destination! Since hosting the Past Kings’ Dinner, we’ve received an overwhelming response about availability for 2020.
In addition to Mardi Gras functions, no wedding is too large, small, intimate, grandiose, or detailed for our team of professionals. With our Preferred Caterers to choose from, we can cater to any cuisine or style of food desired. Over this past year, Le Pavillon has accumulated some novel amenities not offered at other venues in Lafayette to add a special touch to our clients’ wedding day including a horse and carriage exit, the ability to accommodate over 1,700 guests in a beautiful setting, a central location with access to accomplish of all of the day-of events in one center (Home 2 Suites by Hilton, Altered Salon, Le Jour Couture, Grouse Room, Indulge, Renewed Med Spa, Superior Nails, etc.), and a wedding and honeymoon planner on staff.
