Cochon Cotillion

This legendary event is a true parody of traditional black-tie galas and of the more customary Mardi Gras Balls. It’s a virtual who’s who of New Orleans finest citizens!

Join us next year on April 17, 2021!

Hear ye, hear ye! On behalf of Bridge House / Grace House, King Bill Metcalf, and Queen Karen DeBlieux, we regrettably must inform you of the cancellation of Cochon Cotillion XXIV Presented by Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust & Goldring Family Foundation!

Due to the early circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, but with much hope that the situation would improve, the 24th annual Cochon Cotillion (originally scheduled for April) was postponed until August 29, 2020. As an organization committed to the health and recovery of those in need, we felt that this was the most responsible course of action at the time to ensure the well-being of everyone involved – our King & Queen and members of their Court; Committee Members, Sponsors, Attendees, and Volunteers; Vendors and Restaurants; as well as Bridge House / Grace House Staff & Residents. The most responsible choice now is to cancel Cochon Cotillion in 2020 because of the COVID-19 situation not being resolved in a manner that would make it feasible and/or safe for us to hold an event of this nature.

Now we look to the future and to celebrating Cochon Cotillion XXV on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at Mardi Gras World! For the 25th annual Cochon Cotillion, King Bill Metcalf & Queen Karen DeBlieux will be extending their reign for another year as your esteemed royals, and we hope you will join them in the same revelry as is accustomed at our “unofficial” kickoff to Carnival – costumes and tacky formal de riguer, the marvelous music of ELS and Mike Morris, the mini-parade, delicious fare from local restaurants, an open bar, large silent auction, and a raffle!

For all Cochon Cotillion 2020 sponsorships and tickets, there are three options – 1) treat it as a donation towards Bridge House / Grace House’s general operating expenses; 2) transfer to the 2021 event (funds and/or benefits); and 3) receive a full refund. FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO REQUEST A REFUND/TRANSFER, CONTACT KEVIN GARDERE AT KGARDERE@BRIDGEHOUSE.ORG OR 504.821.7133
