2016 Mardi Gras Parade Schedule

Mardi Gras Parade Schedule
Mardi Gras Parade Schedule

Each year there are dozens of parades in New Orleans and the surrounding area, and this year is no different. Parades begin Wednesday, January 6, 2016 and continue until Mardi Gras Day, February 9, 2016. Usually days have several parades booked back to back, so whether you are on St. Charles Avenue with the family, catching beads from a Central Business District balcony or enjoying the floats on Canal before a night in the French Quarter, plan for a day of Mardi Gras magic!

Pack clothing that is comfortable and can be layered, as the weather is often warm during the day and cooling off for the night parades. And don't be shy—wear a costume, especially on Mardi Gras day. It's all about fun!
