The Parlour Tour is one of St. Louis’ most time-honored traditions, inviting guests to view featured homes decked in their holiday best. 

Soulard features beautifully restored 19th-century red brick Victorian homes and Federal-style townhouses dating from the mid- to late-1800s. Heated shuttles will take guests from home to home where they will get to meet homeowners and hear interesting facts and stories about their restoration efforts. The event begins with festivities at Gene Slay’s Boys' Club of St. Louis, at 2524 S. 11th Street.

This much-anticipated annual event will feature tours of several unique homes, a holiday bazaar, food, music and much more. This year in celebration of the 250th anniversary of St. Louis, Soulard will also be celebrating our 250th house on the tour.  The exact house will be a surprise until you tour it. Enjoy all its glory and a piece of cake on your way out!

Tickets are $22 per person in advance and $25 per person the day of the event.  Advance reservations are encouraged for a preferred tour time slot and available for purchase right here, if you scroll down a little more. You can also find us on Facebook at Soulard Parlour Tour

We are back!  Get your tickets today for the First Annual Vices and Virtues Mardi Gras Ball to be held in Soulard at Mad Art Gallery, 2727 12th Street, St. Louis, Missouri, on Saturday, January 31, 2015.  The ball will include the crowning of the King and Queen, a five to seven course dinner, an open bar, Tarot card readers, fire jugglers, live music by Millennium and other entertainment in the Vices and Virtues theme.  The evening will start with a cocktail reception at 6:00 p.m.  Dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m. Jade Sinclair will be our mistress of ceremonies and the entire evening will be filled with live entertainment, and yes, there will be a costume contest.  Guests selected to participate in the costume contest will be eligible to win prizes including cash, wine cooler filled with wine, gift certificates to various restaurants, and tickets to other Mardi Gras events.  All guests must come in a costume or evening attire and a mask is required.  

Soulard has hosted Mardi Gras in the neighborhood for about a quarter of a century now with numerous Mardi Gras balls hosted by a variety of Mardi Gras Krewes.  Sadly, for the last five years, there has not been a Mardi Gras ball in the Soulard neighborhood.  In New Orleans there are at least 30+ Mardi Gras balls.  We believe Soulard deserves at least one so we plan to knock it out of the court with the Vices and Virtues Ball.  

The Soulard Restoration Group’s Beautification Committee, a not for profit 501C3 organization, is coming to the rescue.  This will be an “over the top” Mardi Gras Ball.  Tickets are selling fast and reserved dinner tickets are almost gone.  Please visit VandVball@soulard.org for full details.  All of the proceeds from this ball will be returned to the neighborhood in beautification projects.  Please contact Luann Denten, Vices and Virtues Mardi Gras Ball Chairwoman, at 314-852-2771.
