You’ll get extra fun points for really getting into the spirit of Mardi Gras by donning a full-on costume for all to see and admire.
Steamboat Mardi Gras Parade
What is Mardi Grad without a parade? They go together, and if you opted to get in the spirit by wearing a costume, all the better! The parade starts at 3pm at Ski Time Square which is right in front of the Steamboat Base club. Be a part of the parade marching through Mountain Village sharing joy with everyone. Staying true to Mardi Gras tradition, there will be masks and beads for all on a first-come first-served basis.
Mardi Gras Party
After the parade the festivities continue at the Mardi Gras Party at Gondola Square. Join the joy and happiness with dancing, singing, and enjoy the live entertainment from street performers.
Mardi Gras Free Concert
Stick around for the free Mardi Gras concert! Enjoy singing and dancing to your favorite local and regional performers.
Mardi Gras is not complete without the taste of New Orleans. Many of the local restaurants offer traditional New Orleans’ cuisine such as the catfish po’ boy at Ragnar’s, gumbo at Hazie’s a crawfish boil at Timber & Torch and several entrees such as shrimp and andouille etouffee.
Join the celebration as the spirit of Mardi Gras comes to Steamboat Springs!
