2020 Mardi Gras Tickets are ON SALE NOW!!!
Updated: Dec 28, 2021
Tickets can be purchased directly from the brothers of Kappa Omega OR online through Eventbrite.
Hotel rooms can be booked directly through the Penn Harris by calling 717-763-7117; be sure to mention KAPPA OMEGA MARDI GRAS to get the best rate!
Q. What is the theme this year?
A. Mardi Gras in and of itself is a theme party. Although we sometimes create a sub-theme,
we don't always do it.
Q. How much are the tickets?
A. Tickets are $85.
Q. The tickets cost more online. Why is that?
A. There is a convenience fee when tickets are purchased via Eventbrite.
Q. Will you be selling tickets at the door?
A. It's highly unlikely that tickets will be available at the door since the event typically sells out. If we do, they will go for more than the online tickets.
Q. Can you hold a ticket for me?
A. Absolutely not! You can take your chances at the door but the way tickets are selling
these days, I wouldn't count on getting one or paying the $85 price. For the last two years,
we have had less than 20 tickets for door sales.
Q. Can I purchase a ticket for just Friday or Saturday night?
A. No. What you are purchasing is the Mardi Gras which is Saturday. Friday is a gift to those
who purchase a ticket for Saturday night.
Q. But I can only be there Friday (or Saturday). $85 is a lot of money.
A. We'd love to have you but we understand!
Q. Where can I get the tickets online?
A. Click over to the Kappa Omega Eventbrite page and look for the Mardi Gras link.
Q. I don't want my credit card information "out there". Can I still buy a ticket?
A. Of course you can. You can find one of the brothers selling tickets or take your chances at
the door. Note: This is the internet age. Whether you know it or not, your bank information
is already "out there".
Q. I bought my ticket early but my friend just got his/her. They are not at the same table.
Can we sit still sit together?
A. No. The tickets are grouped by table. The seller gets rid of them on a first-come, first-serve basis. Next year co-ordinate your buying efforts.
Q. I bought my ticket online, are you going to mail it to me?
A. No. Your ticket will be available in the hotel lobby from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm Friday night. After that, you can get it at the main ballroom entrance.
Q. I was going to come but now I can't. Can I sell you my ticket back to Kappa Omega?
A. No. All sales are final.
Q. Can I book a suite?
Q. How come I can only book two rooms?
A. We have had people hoarding rooms and then releasing them too late to get others in at
the discount rate.
Q. Can you get me a room at the Radisson?
A. The rooms are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. With the exception of the suites, the rooms are controlled by the Radisson. Book early. Most rooms are usually booked when checking out the previous year. We recommend trying before Christmas of the prior year.
Q. But I booked at the Penn Harris and somehow they lost my registration.
A. No, they didn't. (keep your reservation #)
Q. I was too late to get into the Penn Harris. Is there a backup hotel?
A. Yes. The Crowne Plaza on 2nd Street in Harrisburg. It is less than 2 miles from the hotel.
Q. Somehow the Penn Harris is charging me for a room and I didn't book it.
A. Yes, you did. Every year the hotel gives us a rate that they don't use any other time of the
year. That's how we know the room could only be booked by someone coming to the Mardi
Gras. Also, you have to give your credit card number at the time of booking. You may have
forgotten to cancel your reservation because something came up in your life or somebody
backed out on you but please don't even come at us with that. We do not get a cut of the
room fees so it's between you and the hotel.
Q. Is the dress code the same for both nights?
A. No. Friday evening is more of a relaxed setting. Saturday you are expected to come with your best or in costume.
