Catch a Good Time during
Mardi Gras

It’s a tale old as time. Rich feasts, swanky costumes, all that glitters in gold and more to celebrate Carnival.  With French roots that run deep, it’s no wonder that Pensacola was the stomping grounds for one of the first Mardi Gras celebrations in the United States. With the turn of a new year, swarms of beads and Moon Pies will soon be flying overhead while the sounds of laughter and music fill the streets. Passionate krewes, extravagant parades, and decorated floats will soon be the talk of the town and you’re invited to the party . Catch all of the events, beads and more below.

Pensacola Mardi Gras Inc. is postponing the 2021 Season Kick-Off Celebration and Blessing of the Krewe Fleets event previously scheduled on January 8th, 2021. This year, the event will be moved to the month of May and will kick-off an even larger Pensacola “Carnivale Celebration.”
