History of Mardi Gras Reception & Exhibit

Let the good times roll and immerse yourself in the festive spirit at the upcoming History of Mardi Gras Exhibit! Explore the rich cultural tradition behind the famous Mardi Gras colors, uncover the origins of the first King Cake, and so much more!

Feast your eyes on intricate and flamboyant Mardi Gras costumes, graciously on loan from the Mardi Gras Museum of Imperial Calcasieu and some of SWLA Krewes. Stop by on January 24 to enjoy delicious refreshments, savor mouthwatering King Cakes, and discover something new about everyone’s favorite holiday season.

The recent history of the museum itself is notable: They reopened their doors in 2021 to the public after renovations one day before the one-year anniversary of 2020’s Hurricane Laura – the cause that forced the beloved Lake Charles icon to close. This month, this exhibit reception was originally slated for Jan. 18, but postponed to Jan. 24 due to weather concerns.
