Mardi Gras Parade and Festival

Let the good times roll... Fat Tuesday is just around the corner and Buffalo is going to be celebrating New Orleans style as Artvoice presents its 16th annual Mardi Gras Parade and Festival.

Artvoice will join forces with their sponsors Southern Comfort and Labatt to throw the biggest Mardi Gras party in the Northeast!

On Fat Tuesday (March 8th), the Elmwood Strip, Chippewa District, and Historic Allentown will become Buffalo's own French Quarter. Start partying at 5pm when the parade makes its way though town, and keep partying until we get kicked out!     

All funds raised by $5 bracelet sales benefit Give for Greatness, a campaign to restore funding to dozens of cultural groups. It's Buffalo's biggest party night of the year... so come out and party for a great cultural cause!

Look for us at Cozumel anytime beween 5:30 and 6:30 PM.

    Is this like the St Patrick's Day parade where everyone walks around with open containers and the cops look the other way?

    Would anyone be up for going out a little later? Around 8pm? That's when it gets really crazy!

    Let's go to Cozumel to watch the parade! It's closer to Fat Bobs and depending on the weather we can walk there!

    I'd like to go to Fat Bob's!

    If we meet closer to Allen, than those of us that want to go to Fat Bob's afterwards can walk there. Any thoughts on that idea, or am I the only one that wants to go to Fat Bob's?

    Hi Lauren, I'm thinking of making this a bit later to make it more convenient for everybody.

    How long do you think the meetup will be going on? No way I can get there by 4:30, but maybe by 5:30 if I rush....

    Anyone interested in piling up in one car? Parking can get crazy around there during events.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
