Coastal Mississippi Mardi Gras • Full 2024 Schedule

In Coastal Mississippi, the good times roll, and roll, and roll. With 12 coastal communities in the tri-county coastal region, the collective calendar boasts events all across the shoreline communities. And because Mississippians love a reason to celebrate, there are events and parades that bring droves of visitors to this lovely 62 miles of scenic coastline.

The Mississippi Gulf Coast is packed full of fun parades and events perfect for incoming visitors. Come along to celebrate the Carnival season!

Fun fact, according to the Clarion Ledger, Jackson, Mississippi’s newspaper, “Mardi Gras reaches a milestone this year as it marks a notable anniversary of Fat Tuesday being observed in what is now the US, but this year is even more special as it falls on another historic date … It’s the 325th anniversary of the first celebration of Mardi Gras in the Americas. [French explorer and founder of Biloxi, MS, Pierre Le Moyne] d’Iberville wrote in his log on March 4th, 1699, that it was Mardi Gras day. It was certainly a small celebration, but he acknowledged the holiday. … Biloxi [was] founded on Feb. 13, that is also the date of Mardi Gras this year.”
