  • MARDI GRAS FAQ
    The Top Questions You Weren't Afraid to Ask
    Who officially runs Mardi Gras? Where can I buy tickets?
    You can buy them from me. Send cash.
    OK, Let's get it straight: Mardi Gras is a HOLIDAY. Like Christmas. Or Halloween. Anyone can create Mardi Gras events.
    What's the difference between Mardi Gras and Carnival?
    Carnival officially begins in New Orleans on the Feast of Epiphany, or Twelfth Night - Jan. 6 - and continues until the midnight of Fat Tuesday - Mardi Gras - the day before Ash Wednesday.

    Is there a lot of nudity during Mardi Gras?
    That depends on your definition of "a lot." In general, it occurs within the French Quarter, on Bourbon St. Most places in the city, you are unlikely to see any nudity at all . . . and if you do, you are likely to see the exposed person in handcuffs a short time later.
