Mardi Gras in New Orleans

Carnival Season throughout Crescent City


Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras in the French Quarter

What’s your idea of the ultimate party? If it’s a collection of heritage, parades, costumes, and plenty of libations, then Mardi Gras is your answer.

Known as the Greatest Free Show on Earth, Mardi Gras is held in early spring along the streets of downtown New Orleans.

Adorn yourself in purple, gold, and green, and find a spot along St. Charles Avenue or Canal Street for sights of colorful krewes and all the beads and doubloons you can catch.

Whether you’re kicking off Carnival Season on Twelfth Night in January, or just catching Lundi Gras and Fat Tuesday, you’ll never be the same after your time at Mardi Gras.

Of course you must prepare for Mardi Gras. Make your way down the famed Bourbon Street for colorful shops and stock up on beads, masks, t-shirts – and maybe grab a little souvenir for home.

More Mardi Gras shopping is found throughout the French Quarter, especially within the French Market and small vendors in Jackson Square.

For a complete Mardi Gras experience during your time in New Orleans, head to Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World right on the Mississippi River. For a history lesson on the dynamic heritage of the Mardi Gras celebration, visit the Backstreet Cultural Museum or The Presbytere, and enjoy your stay at a Best Western hotel in New Orleans.
