Algiers Mardi Gras Festival

Algiers Ferry Landing

A small parade will begin at the Algiers Ferry Terminal and wind through the neighborhood. Live music, food from beloved vendors and plenty of beverages will create an all-day party atmosphere near the ferry terminal. Brass-0-Holics, Algiers Brass Band and other local bands will perform. The event is free and open to the public and accessible via ferry, bus, bike or on foot via a paved levee path from adjoining neighborhoods. Ferry service runs every 30 minutes from Canal Street to Old Algiers. Parking for individual vehicles is limited in the surrounding neighborhood. Those interested in a vending opportunity should call 504-578-6621. For general information about the event, email
