The Italian Community of St Louis' is proud to announce its second annual CARNEVALE VENEZIANO. Together with the St Louis - Bologna Sister Cities Organization, our clubs Italiano Per Piacere and Giovani Italiani Saint Louis, as well as support from the Vice-Consolate of Italy in St Louis, the World Trade Center - St Louis, the World Affairs Council of St Louis, and from numerous generous sponsors including ARTECO GLOBAL and ITALGRANI, we are are proud to present a spectacular one-of-a-kind Venetian Masquerade Gala. Our theme this year is "Bringing Carnevale to Soulard" as we host our unique event at the eclectic Mad Art Gallery in one of St Louis' trendiest neighborhoods where our city's version of Mardi Gras calls home. Venetian style masquerade masks are strongly encouraged. This will be a family-friendly enviornment and children under the age of 5 are welcome free of charge.
A lavish dinner served buffet-style will be prepared by culinary artist Ron Buechele followed by music and entertainment by our very own DJ Antonio Leone who comes from Foggia in Puglia. Wine and beer are included in the purchase of an adult ticket and an open bar will be provided. Prizes will be given for the best mask. We have more surprises in store for you and some very special guests will be announced as the Carnevale gets closer. Get your tickets now as we fully expect a sold-out event!
