Supplement your Mardi Gras festivities with JAMNOLA's new installations. The cultural funhouse in the Marigny will celebrate the season with the latest additions now through Sunday, February 21.
Each of the displays from new and current JAMNOLA artists celebrate the traditions, legends, and krewes of Carnival and will be sprinkled throughout the 12-room experience. The exterior entrance will be transformed with Arc D'JAM from artist Robin Durand and Breanna Thompson, and there are tributes to Big Chief Tootie Montana of the Yellow Pocahontas and "Mr. Mardi Gras" Blaine Kern Sr. Skye Erie, an artist and Rex float designer, has created a mini float (the back of a Mississippi riverboat with two mermaids looking for a kiss) which will be a permanent attraction at the facility. Memorabilia, including coveted throws, and plenty of beads will be showcased as well.
Guests will receive a commemorative go-cup that has a QR code with a map to the Krewe of House Floats and discounts to bars and restaurants, plus a special doubloon. The gift shop will also have a DIY umbrella kit, limited edition tie-dye king cake baby shirt, and king cakes from Bywater Bakery.
General admission tickets are $29 for adults and $20 for children. Kids ages 2 & under are free. Tickets can be purchased online at www.jamnola.com. Ticket reservations are required; no walk-ins.
JAMNOLA is located at 2832 Royal Street.
