About Asheville Mardi Gras

​​Asheville Mardi Gras is an all-volunteer community-based arts and culture group made up of New Orleans ex-pats, aficionados of that culture, and … okay, some folks who just LOVE a good party!

Our purpose is to strengthen community connections through promoting creativity, frivolity and celebration based on the traditions of New Orleans, LA.


Mardi Gras, or Carnival, is an ancient world-wide tradition of feasting and celebrating before entering a time of atonement. We are a non-profit organization.
