After over three decades of being dormant, the Mystic Krewe of Apollo de New Orleans is rising again in 2020 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first ever Krewe of Apollo Bal Masque with its Mystic Krewe of Apollo de New Orleans Resurrection Bal Masque.
Many things have happened in the 50 years since the original Krewe of Apollo New Orleans ball masque was held at Hotel Monteleone. With this event, we celebrate the half century of success that began with Apollo New Orleans and has lived on with the thriving sister Krewes of Apollo in Baton Rouge, Birmingham and Lafayette. On this night, we celebrate each milestone where it all began in 1970. The Resurrection Bal Masque will be an ode to the original location where a gay Krewe first came out of the shadows in a four-star hotel, the Hotel Monteleone. The event will feature a plated full service dinner, dancing and the presentation of Apollo New Orleans newest Royalty — all with a true Bal Masque (masked ball).
