Blue Devil Celebration

Saturday, June 10
8:00 p.m.
Hôtel des Invalides

Did you know the Duke Blue Devils have French roots? Our beloved university mascot was inspired by the Chasseurs Alpins, nicknamed "les Diables Bleus".

Join us as we celebrate the shared Blue Devil heritage with an exclusive evening in Paris. The Blue Devils brass band will come from Grenoble for a special appearance. The event will take place in the private rooms and gardens of the Paris Military Governor in the Invalides. In addition to the band concert, we will enjoy a private visit to the museum, including Napoleon's tomb, and a cocktail reception.

Please mark your calendar and plan to join us on June 10.
