Parades Update

Mardi Gras of Southwest Louisiana has decided it is in the best interest of public health and safety to forgo hosting any parades to celebrate Mardi Gras in 2021. Please continue to keep the Mardi Gras spirit alive by purchasing decor for your home or office or purchasing king cakes for your immediate household from local bakers. Gather craft supplies to build shoebox floats with your kids and more. Enter the Shoebox Float Contest


Get Involved

Mardi Gras has the venue, the publicity and the spenders who want to pass a good time. Mardi Gras of Southwest Louisiana, Inc., throws a month-long, family-friendly festival with over 20 non-profit public events that focus on the heritage of Louisiana and Mardi Gras. The organization depends on corporate sponsorships, grants, and donations for its funding. We can't do it without you!
