About Us

The team behind your dream.

Pelican Events is located on six acres, close to the Louis Armstrong International Airport.

For more than 30 years, our team has prided itself on creating events that create memories.

Dolph Federico, owner and founder of the Pelican Events, is a former law enforcement officer for whom safety is paramount. We keep meticulous maintenance records on all our equipment and run detailed background checks on all employees. We are fully insured and every member of our team is certified to run our equipment safely.

An event is a living breathing thing. You need people who can anticipate problems before they can occur – a team that’s always one step ahead. We’ve done everything from building a stage in the middle of the Huey P. Long to converting a hotel in the middle of French Quarter into the "The Bud Light Hotel" – and we’ve pulled it off without a hitch! Bring us your big ideas and experience the thrill of watching them come to life.

We don’t just build stages – we build attendance.

When you work with Pelican, you get the added advantage of publicity for an event open to the public. Our Facebook page has more than 15,000 followers and we have over 20,000 followers across all social platforms. What’s more, your event will be promoted on our partner sites. No other event company goes so far to ensure your success. We are your one-shop event stop.
