WHAT DOES IT COST?

  Much of Southern Decadence happens on the streets and is free!   A Weekend Pass is good for free nightly admission to the The Bourbon Pub and The Parade, featuring their award-winning video programming and nightly circuit party dance events.  It guarantees admission, lets you bypass general admission lines by using an expedited entrance, has several other perks, and will also save you a few bucks.  There is also a VIP Weekend Pass, which gets you everything of the regular Weekend Pass plus many more amenities.  Weekend Passes are available for purchase online NOW.
