Parade and Queens Ball
Check out these other Asheville Mardi Gras events that keep the Bon Temps rolling all year long!
A thank-you celebration for all our members during which the theme for the parade will be revealed!
Deep in the heart of winter, the Mardi Gras season lights a spark as it begins with the Twelfth Night Celebration.
The parade is our gift to the city, a zany, exuberant and irreverent downtown event in the dead of mid-winter.
It's the event that will warp time itself! Come celebrate with Asheville Mardi Gras as we turn the clocks back and gain an extra hour to party down.
Each year we pay tribute to the southern roots of Mardis Gras with a food and music fest in which Asheville chefs dish up their takes on Cajun cuisine.
