Do I have to be 21 to attend?

Yes. You Must Be 21 or over to attend. Do not purchase tickets if you are under 21 years of age as you will not be permitted entry and there are no refunds. Every attendee must have a valid form of photo ID. This includes a valid drivers license or passport. School ID is not acceptable for entry to this event.

What is the typical makeup of attendees?

The event typically attracts a mid-20’s to early 40’s crowd, but anyone over 21 years old is of course welcome. People travel in from around the world for the event, so the event has a nice diversity to it. There is typically a 50/50 split of singles and couples, as well as a pretty even split of women and men. There are multiple distinct party areas and types of entertainment so there is always something for everyone.

What is the dress code?

There is no formal dress code enforced, however, we want people looking their best. Creative, upscale attire is definitely encouraged! Gentlemen: range from club attire to black tie. Ladies: range from stylish cocktail attire to formal gowns.

The description says that VIP is all-inclusive. What does that mean?

A VIP ticket includes all of your entertainment on each of the event stages, plus all drinks as well as food from 9-11pm.

Do you offer a designated driver discount?

Currently, we do not offer a designated driver ticket option or a discounted ticket option for non-drinkers. We have many, many bars and hundreds of bartenders throughout the venue, and it’s impossible for us to monitor who is drinking and who is not drinking. We do offer non-alcoholic beverages throughout the night at each bar.

What is the refund policy?

Once tickets are purchased, they are non-refundable for any reason. However, tickets are transferable to another person who wishes to attend the event.

What Covid-19 restrictions will there be at the event?

At the present time, there are no Covid-19 restrictions in place in the City of New Orleans or in the state of Louisiana. The health and safety to everyone involved is our number one priority. The risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.

If circumstances change, Big Night New Orleans will follow any and all restrictions issued by the City of New Orleans, or the State of Louisiana that are effective on December 31, 2022.

What is the layout of the event and seating arrangements and the difference between Main Event and VIP Tickets?

Main Event tickets are a general admission ticket w/ VERY limited seating for the Main Event tickets to maximize event space and comfortable crowd flow.

However, there are more open seating areas available in the VIP sections for the vast majority of the VIP’s. If seating or on site dinner is your preference, then VIP is the way to go.
