Family Gras is a FREE three-day festival of concerts featuring local and national acts, local cuisine, an art market, kids zone, various sponsor booths and the pageantry of the Mardi Gras parades!

There are always exciting reasons to line the parade route and enjoy Mardi Gras in Jefferson Parish!

The Magical Krewe of MadHatters brings whimsy, innovation, and celebrity in its parade. The Krewe of Atlas and the Krewe of Centurions parade in the prime time Saturday night spot on Family Gras weekend. Centurions, MadHatters, Atlas, Excalibur and the Krewe of Kings keep the good times rolling during Family Gras!

The Krewe of Isis rolls in Kenner. Moving from Metairie to Kenner in 2019 brought Isis back to its roots. It rolled in Kenner for its first seven years, then moved to Metairie for 40 years.

Parade-goers on Bonnabel Blvd are entertained at Carnival Kick-Off with face-painting, balloon art, clowning, and more. During Family Gras weekend, parades roll directly into the Family Gras festival grounds at Clearview Center with musical performances before and after.
