Go To Mardi Gras

Southern Louisiana Soul Music Meets A Masquerade Of Madness.

New Orleans Unique Lease On Life

In the packed streets of the French quarters, New Orleans explodes into a street party unlike any other the day before Ash Wednesday.

Despite the festival actually taking place across multiple cities, it's heart and soul belongs solely to New Orleans. The blues roots than run through it's veins, bleed from a cacophony of brass instruments during the festivities and cobbled French colonial streets are converted into quaint dance floors full of care-free dancing and bead exchanging.
