Le Krewe de Bienville Mardi Gras Parade
From: 5:00 PM
We anticipate this event occurring around these estimated dates. Once we learn the confirmed dates, we will update this page. Meanwhile, read about last year's event details below.
Founded in 1961, the Krewe, created by downtown hotel owners and then-Mayor Joe Langan, was started as a non-parading organization, and its ball was often referred to as the out-of-towners' ball. The idea was that folks visiting from out-of-town who were unable to attend a Mardi Gras ball because they couldn't score an invitation could now attend the ball put on by Le Krewe de Bienville by purchasing a ticket.
