Event Details

Mardi Gras, New Orleans

Mardi Gras is a lively celebration of dance, music, food and happiness. This free street party takes place the day before Ash Wednesday, 47 days before Easter and the celebration lasts about two weeks. The number of parades taking place during Mardi Gras festival is huge, so don’t expect to see everything. If you walk around the Old French Quarter you will get to see as many parades as possible, as well as joining in the fun with party goers.

What To Expect At Mardi Gras

While the parades are organized by locals, tourists are welcomed to dress any way they want. You can spend a fortune on your carnival suit or just recycle your Halloween costume – either way, there are no rules, nor limits when it comes to dressing up for the big street party. As the party goes on around the historic buildings, viewers get a lot of handouts, from stuffed animals and beads to the most prized item, the Zulu coconut, a hand-painted coconut which makes for a great vacation souvenir.

Mardi Gras Events

Each day there is a parade organized by a ‘krewe’ (private clubs which are the core of Mardi Gras festival). Among the most famous krewes there is Zulu, specialized in historic parades, Rex, Bacchus, Endymion and Krewe of Muses, an all-female club.   Expect lots of parades, carnivals balls and parties!

What To Eat At Mardi Gras

New Orleans is known for good food and during Mardi Gras you can taste some of the best King Cakes. La Boulangerie welcomes the party goers with delicious cake made from puff pastry and almond cream. You can also find cakes filled with cream cheese, strawberry cream and cinnamon. When you need a good meal make sure you try some of the staple dishes of Louisiana cuisine: deep fried chicken, gravy-soaked biscuits and Creole gumbo. When you are after a local breakfast look for beignets and chicory coffee.
