As a Community Sponsor you will be invited to our GCCA Summer Social in August where we will get a head start on our 100+ year Mardi Gras celebration. You will also attend the Sponsor’s Reception where the identity of the King D’Iberville, Queen Ixolib, and their Royal Court will first be revealed. The Sponsor’s Reception is an exclusive event only attended by our Community Sponsors. You will also be invited to the Royal Reception the weekend before Mardi Gras and get to experience the activities at our host hotel. At the Coronation Ball on the night before Mardi Gras, you will experience the pageantry of the coronation of our royalty and then dance into the night with our royalty and other community sponsors. You will also be offered special seating across from Biloxi City Hall for our parade on Mardi Gras day. Community Sponsor’s and their family members may also request to participate in Mardi Gras as part of the royalty or as a flag bearer.
