SNO Gala Event - Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Join your colleagues from around the world for a special evening to experience a taste—literally and figuratively—of the fascinating culture and delicious cuisine of New Orleans.  The evening begins as we gather for libations in front of the Marriott Hotel, and then proceed to parade through the streets of New Orleans, escorted by police, stilt walkers, costumed performers and a raucous brass band.  The parade route will take us down Canal Street and through the Warehouse District, dancing and throwing beads to passers-by along the way!  Our parade will terminate at the New Orleans Contemporary Arts Center, where we will be treated to delicious Cajun cuisine and lively music for the remainder of the evening!

Tickets to the SNO Gala sell quickly so you are advised to purchase your ticket early. Ticket can be added to your registration at any time and are available on a first-come/first-served basis.
