Naughti Gras 15
NGXV: May 13th and 14th 2022


Eve Out of Garden by participating artist Charlotte Johnson

Though the Mardi Gras Season has passed, we have been summoned to call on all to stop spring cleaning, come out of the garden and let’s have Naughti Gras! We have a great weekend planned and can’t wait to welcome artists, performers, return guests and new friends … It’s Spring and it will be an awakening! Come join this Art Experience during this beautiful time of the year!!

Naughti Gras is first and foremost an Art Show and the heart and soul of the evening!  Local and regional artists will be exhibiting their talents and “naughti” imaginations through various forms of art mediums.  It doesn’t happen without the artists!   Enjoy this one of a kind playful, erotic evening  for eye-popping art, dazzling entertainment and great people watching!  And if you secretly want to attend but don’t want to be seen … you can still wear a mask!

Eats and Drink:  Visit the Koken Cafe for light fare food and drink … Or something hot and spicy by “Kussin Katies Hot Sauce”.  Matt (the “salsa guy” as he is affectionally known, has some spicy surprises for you!

Feel like dirty dancing?  The Darrells, Naughti Gras’ rockin’ house band, returns to get the party started and will be playing all weekend long!

The Darrells

Like past years, our Live Entertainment line up will feature a variety of Erotic Dancing, Sexy Fashions, Ambient and Interactive performers and Live music.  And as always there will be something for the Kinky! 

Our Naughti Emcee, Auralie Wilde

Auralie Wilde: NGXV Emcee
