Mardi Gras Dinner

Celebrate Mardi Gras with the Appalachian Region - Tuesday, February 13, 2024

Join our Mardi Gras Party on Tuesday, February 13, 2024 at the Connestee Falls Country Club, 33 Connestee Trail, Brevard, NC 28712.  The party starts at 5:30 p.m. with a social hour in a Mardi Gras decorated room with Dixieland Jazz music creating a festive Mardi Gras atmosphere.  

A plated dinner is served at 6:30 p.m. offering you a choice of a Skillet-seared Filet Mignon, Blackened Salmon or Bean Cousellet. The Filet and Salmon feature Mardi Gras style sides.  The vegetarian option is a White Bean Cassoulet.

Each entré selection is accompanied by a garden salad with Italian or Ranch Dressing and a dessert of Bourbon Pecan Pie with chocolate sauce and cinnamon whipped creme.  Coffee, tea and water are included with the meal price.  Alcohol drinks and sodas are an additional expense that you purchase at the Club.

Here is the pricing and choices that you have for the evening.  Each entré includes all three courses with water, coffee or tea.  Alcoholic drinks and sodas will be available at an extra cost paid on-site.
