January 3 - February 25, 2020

Start Planning! 

The best part about celebrating Mardi Gras in Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana is the atmosphere. Whether it's a parade, the Mardi Gras Museum or Mardi Gras history in Lake Charles. There is a type of warmth that is genuine along with a simple spirit of joy which is what we Cajuns call the "joie de vivre" or the "joy of living."
