The VCPORA Gala is our most important annual event and one that offers our community the chance to support and celebrate the Vieux Carré and its oldest guardian, VCPORA. We remain firmly committed to defending this remarkable neighborhood and, with your help, will continue advocating to increase residential opportunities and quality of life in the French Quarter. The success of these efforts is a direct result of your support!
See below for information on the 2021 Gala.
This year’s gala, Le Rendez Vieux, will be held in honor of the generosity and legacy of Albert “Blue” Flettrich, Jr. The gala will take place on Thursday, November 11, 2021, at the beloved historic Beauregard-Keyes House, which will graciously set the stage for an evening of culinary delights and lively entertainment! We hope you will consider joining us for this vital fundraising event.
The Patron Party will begin at 6 p.m. and will lead us into the Gala which will be held from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.
This year, we are planning to celebrate our gala in person, but we must acknowledge an uncertain future. To celebrate responsibly, we will be following all local safety mandates and we will be requiring proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test within 72 hours. You may submit proof of vaccination prior to the event by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org; otherwise, a volunteer will be checking vaccine cards upon entry.
In addition to a few surprises, we will be dancing our hearts out to Meschiya Lake & her Little Big Quartet and Alicia Renee aka “Blues Eye,” while enjoying food and drinks from local vendors like Jacques Imo’s, Seven Three Distilling, Bayou Beer & Wine Garden, Bar Tonique, Leah’s Pralines, Acme Oysters, and Piece of Meat!
