Durham Mardi Gras Parade

Posted: Updated:

Did you know that Durham has been celebrating Mardi Gras since 2011 and that we’re doing it again this year?  Our aim is to create an annual Durham Mardi Gras that takes the best of New Orleans’ tradition and adds a big helping of North Carolina flavor.  Durham has been showing central NC how to do Mardi Gras since 2011, with thousands taking part in the biggest and craziest Fat Tuesday for miles around.  In the last few years, we’ve had everything from kids’ costume extravaganzas to the Big Parade to amazing bands with dancing and carousing into the wee hours.  We’ve had the best in food and music from Louisiana and North Carolina.
