Eunice Mardi Gras • Full 2023 Schedule

The Cajun Travel website of St. Landry Parish, Louisiana includes complete and comprehensive event lists of all aspects of the city of Eunice’s 5-day Mardi Gras weekend: Starting on Friday, February 17 through Fat Tuesday, Feb. 21. This weekend differs from your typical idea of Mardi Gras. There are no beads and doubloons. Instead, in Eunice, Louisiana, men and women on horseback don hand-crafted wire masks, tall hats called capuchons, and colorful costumes. The main event is the Courir de Mardi Gras. Here, revelers chase a chicken or guineafowl and participate in Medieval begging practices.

The courir takes place on Mardi Gras day and is only one part of the celebration. Starting the Friday before Mardi Gras Day, you can cut loose all weekend long. Dance in the street at music concerts and jam sessions. There are even activities for children and teenagers at the Lil’ Mardi Gras held on Sunday. Check back for updates as your Mardi Gras trip draws near.
