A Louisiana Mardi Gras in
    St. Tammany Parish

    Dogs, boats, and floats are on parade during St. Tammany Parish’s fun and family-friendly Mardi Gras. If you’re looking for the gee-rated, always free version of Carnival, find it here on Louisiana’s Northshore, just 40 minutes north of New Orleans’ French Quarter. Hotels are affordable and convenient for catching parades both on the Northshore and in New Orleans. (Parking is always free, too.) Mardi Gras 2020 is Tuesday, February 25, 2020, but we begin partying and parading each year on January 6--the Epiphany, also known as Three Kings Day in the U.S. or Twelfth Night, the last day of the Twelve Days of Christmas. See below for a list of Mardi Gras events and parades from January 11th through March 1st, 2020. All dates and times subject to change.

    NOTES: If marked by asterisk (*), the parade date has not yet been announced; date shown is anticipated date.
