Live It Up With Louisiana's Most Anticipated Festivals & Parades - Mardi Gras In New Orleans

Stay at the Crowne Plaza New Orleans French Quarter and enjoy a prime location on the corner of Bourbon and Canal. Catch the famous "uptown" parades of the Mardis Gras festival in Louisiana, New Orleans right across from our hotel. Wear purple, green, and gold with a ton of beads to join the festive scene. The first Mardi Gras was in February of 185 and this iconic event wasn't declared a holiday until1875. Carnival starts January 6 but Mardi Gras takes place two weeks before and into Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, which is also known as Fat Tuesday. The last five days are usually the largest and most epic of all events and parade goers are anxious to see what kinds of trinkets will be thrown from the floats.
