In 2017, we took Carnivale to new heights! Friends, old and new, gathered for Mardi Gras revelry with breathtaking entertainment by BANDALOOP, Andre Theirry and Brass Magic.
We are so grateful for our generous sponsors and friends who made this evening possible. With the support of our incredible trustees, gala committee and guests, we raised over $350,000 for the cathedral’s mission of elevating compassion, inclusivity, creativity and learning.

Carnivale is an evening of beauty, drama and inspiration: a chance to enjoy the splendor of our towering columns and soaring arches as you will see them only once a year — all supporting the cathedral’s work as a house of prayer for all people.
Past Carnivale guests of honor have included R&B legend Aaron Neville, Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy, actress Ashley Judd and the Most Rev. Desmond Tutu. With generous support from our cathedral friends and community, proceeds benefit the pillars of our mission: Compassion, Inclusivity, Creativity and Learning.
