Tucson Mardi Gras is Back and Better Than Ever for 2022!
February 26th the biggest Mardi Gras festival in Arizona! | 1102 W. Grant Road

(Tucson, Arizona) The creative minds behind The Slaughterhouse find their roots in the Louisiana Bayou and as such have decided to bring some of the fun & crazy traditions of Mardi Gras from the Big Easy to the Old Pueblo.

Tucson Mardi Gras will be hosting its 2nd annual free Mardi Gras Festival on Saturday, February 26! Due to staffing issues, the difficult decision was made to cancel events on Sunday, February 27th.

The Mardi Gras Festival, Saturday, February 26 is from 10:30 am to 11:00 pm and is free to the public – that’s right, no entry fee required! There will be authentic cajun food, specialty drinks, great live music, parades, a Bourbon Street Balcony Experience and more!

Throughout the day different experiences will be happening, like Axe Throwing, a New Orleans Mausoleum Tour. At 2:00 pm, a drawing will be held for raffle ticket holders where Tucson Mardi Gras will raffle off a free trip for 2 to New Orleans, for Mardi Gras 2023!

The team behind Tucson Mardi Gras wants to invite everyone in the great city of Tucson to come out and experience a little bit of what NOLA and the real Mardi Gras has to offer! The event benefits AZ Hero Support, a local first responders charity. *This event is 100% No-Scare – haunted houses will not be open in any capacity* * Saturday’s Festival is suggested for ages 18 & up, but kids are allowed with parental discretion*

*If event capacity is reached, upgrade ticket holders and Raffle Entry ticket holders will be given priority entrance – to guarantee entry, please pre-purchase an upgrade or Raffle Entry (Raffle Entry tickets are only $5, and include a chance to win a trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras 2023 along with other great prizes!)
