The 2019 Northwest Fest & Salmon Feast is Family Promise of North Idaho’s major annual fundraiser. It offers a dinner, silent and live auctions, and dancing! We invite you to join us on February 9. Make your reservations early, as this event sold out last year.
The 4th annual Mardi Gras Krewe d’Alene in the CDA Resort Plaza Shops. As you stroll through the “streets” of New Orleans in this re-creation of the French Quarter, you’ll find samples of delicious New Orleans’-style fare from up to 10 local favorite restaurants who are competing in a lively cookoff for Chef’s choice and People’s choice awards. With fun street entertainment throughout there is so much to do.
In addition to the featured restaurants, you can enjoy stilt walkers, jugglers, fortune tellers, henna tatooists, body painters, artists in action, and live musicians. Enjoy a drink in Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Bar, a re-creation of the oldest bar in the country. Sip on a Café Au Lait and savor delightful beignets in the re-creation of the historic Café Du Monde. And new this year is a performance by the drag queens Nova Kaine and Les Gurlz.
Find the baby in the King Cake and reign over the 2019 Mardi Gras, leading the traditional second line led by a live jazz trio. And as they say in New Orleans, “laissez les bon temps rouler” which means “let the good times roll”!
Tickets include a great evening of food, fun, and a souvenir shot glass. There are prizes for best costume and most spirited reveler. Costumes are encouraged but not required. The bar is no host, and revelers must be 21 and over.
