Big Mardi Gras Parade Dates

Located in northwest Louisiana, Shreveport-Bossier throws the best family-friendly Mardi Gras in the state. Whether you’re catching beads at a parade, tapping your feet to a second-line band, or digging into a po’boy, good times are waiting around every corner. A combined total of more than 400,000 revelers are expected to attend the Krewe of Centaur Mardi Gras Parade XXIX and Krewe of Gemini Mardi Gras Parade XXXI, which are the largest parades in northern Louisiana. Download a map of the parade route for these two parades. Please take note that the Krewe of Centaur and Krewe of Gemini prades will begin at 3:30 p.m. in 2020 - this is earlier than the parades have begun in previous years.
