15th Annual Mardi Gras Celebration & Straw Poll

Join the Mount Vernon Democrats for our annual Mardi Gras event on Saturday, February 18th from 6-9PM.

Come for the music, food and fun! Enjoy New Orleans-style Gumbo and Jambalaya, Beignets, King Cakes, and other delicious food. Listen to great live New Orleans jazz music from a six-piece dixieland jazz band, and dance the night away. Join us to hear from our great elected officials and candidates for Virginia Senate, Virginia House and local Fairfax County races. Participate in the annual straw poll, and cast your ballot for your favorite candidate! (Almost all candidates in the Mount Vernon District are confirmed to attend!!) For the second time in 15 years, the event will be in the South County region of Fairfax County. This year we have key open races in the 19th House district and 33rd Senate district in the South County area. These races are important for Democrats winning back the majority in the Virginia House and holding the majority in the Virginia Senate. We look forward to highlighting the beautiful Lorton Workhouse Arts Center that many of our local officials - past and present - have made possible. Hope you will join us!
