Mardi Gras 2012 falls on Tuesday, February 21. Mardi Gras, "Fat Tuesday", is the last day of the Carnival season as it always falls the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Most visitors will plan to arrive no later than Saturday, February 18, 2012 in order to enjoy an extended weekend of festivities.
The carnival season officially begins each year on January 6, the Feast of the Epiphany, --- 'King's Day' -- with traditional balls occurring in the weeks that lead up to the big event.
Spectacular parades with beautiful and creative floats begin parading two weekends prior to Mardi Gras Day. Our private carnival clubs, called krewes, take on royalty status and throw beads, doubloons and toys to all of our parade goers. Visitors quickly learn to say "Throw Me Something Mister!"
The culmination of Mardi Gras in New Orleans begins early on Mardi Gras Day with the Krewes of Zulu and Rex parading through the city. Music, food and elaborate costumes contribute to a fun-filled day of excitement for revelers of all ages.
While the excitement of New Orleans with its music, food and culture is year-round, we invite everyone to experience Mardi Gras at least once in their lifetime. Make your plans now to be a part of this great tradition and see firsthand why we say "Laissez les bon temps rouler!"
