Le Cercle de Bacchus

Founded in 1956, Le Cercle de Bacchus is an organization composed of young bachelors of Baton Rouge and the surrounding area. The primary focus of the organization is to host an annual Presentation Ball to honor outstanding young ladies, selected by the membership.

Le Cercle de Bacchus is recognized as Baton Rouge’s first Debutante Society, having hosted its first ball on January 23, 1958. Debutantes, who are referred to as Honorees, are selected not by family ties but by their own merits and accomplishments. Each year, before the Mardi Gras season concludes, Le Cercle de Bacchus continues the tradition by hosting a ball and presenting the organization's newest Honoree Members.

From its inception, the ball was intended to emulate that fine blend of Latin gaiety, southern graciousness, and a bit of the elegance of the times past, which are the essence of Louisiana culture. The first ball so well reflected this cultural ambiance that its format has become traditional and is observed faithfully today, over six decades later.

For our bachelor members, Le Cercle de Bacchus is more than an annual Ball. Le Cercle de Bacchus offers young men whom are about to, or have already graduated college a chance to belong to something bigger. Benefits of membership include social events throughout the year, networking opportunities with our vast Baron (alumni) network, and leadership opportunities that can help a young man grow personally and professionally.


Le Cercle de Bacchus is Baton Rouge's oldest debutante society having been founded in 1956.
