Mardi Gras Day 2018 Falls On February 13

Next year Mardi Gras Day will be  February 13, 2018. 

Don't wait until the last minute to travel to New Orleans, most of the parades and other festivities will be held at least 2 weeks before Fat Tuesday.

Remember Mardi Gras day is the final day of the Carnival Season. After that comes Ash Wednesday which is the beginning of Lent. So if you get there too late you'll miss out!

Mardi Gras 2017 Will Be February 28

Hey it's almost that time again folks. Mardi Gras Day will fall on Tuesday, February 28 for 2017.

Make sure you try to take in the parades and festivities the two weeks prior to Fat Tuesday, that's the highlight of the Carnival Season.

Also Mardi Gras Day is the last day for celebrating. Everyone's either passed out, asleep or in church the next day since that's Ash Wednesday!

Mardi Gras Day 2016 Is On February 9


Well people, Mardi Gras 2016 will be here before you know it. Next year it falls on Tuesday, February 9.

Make sure you don't wait until the last minute to visit New Orleans for the festivities. Remember Mardi Gras Day is the LAST day of the Carnival Season. The next day is Ash Wednesday and folks will either be in church repenting for what they've done, hungover or asleep!

The best time to arrive is about 2 weeks prior to the big day. That's when a lot of the parades will be running throughout the city. You'll be able to see them in the French Quarter, Uptown New Orleans as well as near the Garden District on St. Charles Avenue. 

Stay tuned for more updates. Feel free to post comments below and thanks for visiting!
