2019 New Orleans Mardi Gras Parade Schedule

Your go-to guide for Big Easy Carnival dates

Forty-three—that’s how many parades will pass through New Orleans neighborhoods this Carnival seazon. That’s if you don’t count the dozens of additional parades taking place in neighboring ’burbs, the impromptu pop-ups...and the possibility of a Super Bowl victory procession.

No sooner does the New Year’s confetti get swept up than New Orleans moves into Mardi Gras mode, with the Phunny Phorty Phellows getting the season of “phun and phrivolity” off to a riotous start Jan. 6 on their annual champagne-fueled ride on the St. Charles streetcar. This year the madcap troupe is followed by a new group, the Funky Uptown Krewe. Also shaking things up in 2019, the sci-fi-centric Chewbacchus parade gets a day all of its own, as does ’tit Rex and the new Krewe Bohème. 

Where’s the party? In the streets.
