Mardi Gras – Fat Tuesday

Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Mardi Gras comes to the Canal District again this year on Fat Tuesday – February 28 – when the district will be buzzing all night long with New Orleans-style revelry.

Some 20 local venues have booked live music for the evening, offering beads, masks, and drink and menu specials. Street performers will be fire-spinning on the sidewalks; and the district will be hopping til the wee hours.

Prizes will be awarded for the popular photo-scavenger hunt, which sends participants throughout the district in quest of designated photo-ops; and a best-dressed king and queen will be crowned at the height of the evening. Beer sponsor Magic Hat will sponsor a raffle for tickets and accommodations for two to the upcoming Mardi Gras festivities in Burlington, Vermont, the weekend of March 12.

The event will kick off at 6:30 p.m., right at Kelley Square, with Dixieland music, free munchies, and a spectacular performance by Sasha the Fire Gypsy.

This is the sixth year of Mardi Gras festivities in the Canal District, which are organized and sponsored by the Canal District Alliance
