Mardi Gras 2017 Parade Schedule

The greatest time of the year in New Orleans is here! Each year, thousands of visitors travel to the city to experience what all residents know is the “best free party in the world” – Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Carnival season started on February 11th with two parades and we will continue to have parades all around the greater New Orleans area until Fat Tuesday on February 28th.

Along with parades, marching bands, dance troupes, King Cake and fried anything, there will be fresh boiled crawfish this year! Since New Orleans permits public consumption of alcohol, you can also be sure there will be plenty of drinking.  Due to the number of people who are out on the streets at the same time and the amount of alcohol being consumed, it’s very important to remain safe.
