2nd Annual Reveillon Dinner @ The Event Space at Shreveport Aquarium
Dec 19 @ 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm

REVEILLON DINNER

Join us for the second annual Reveillon dinner on Monday, Dec. 19, 2022
This exclusive black-tie event that celebrates the holiday season includes a 5-course gourmet meal and wine pairing, prepared by Chef Anthony Felan of Fat Calf Brasserie.
Enjoy the return of the talents of international music sensation Goga, as you admire the stunning views of the bridges and rivers from under the beautiful new pavilion.
Tickets are $225 per person and include a 5-course meal, wine pairing and valet parking.

Bar opens at 6 p.m. First course served at 7 p.m. Nonalcoholic mocktails are available if desired.

Background of Reveillon Dinners

In French, New Orleans’ original language, the word “reveillon” means “awakening.” The Creoles, some of the city’s earliest inhabitants, celebrated the start of Christmas in the early 1800s, with a big family meal when they returned home from midnight mass. It was a tradition the Creoles inherited from their European cousins as a way of breaking the daylong religious fast leading up to Christmas Eve.

Today, the Reveillon tradition still continues in New Orleans but with a few modifications. Instead of family dinners at home, the city’s top-tier restaurants offer extravagant Reveillon Dinners with menus inspired by those enjoyed by the Creole families, at more conventional dining times.

We are pleased to be the first to bring this delightful tradition to Shreveport area in hopes it will inspire more restaurants to do the same during the holiday season.
