The most popular time to visit New Orleans is the extended weekend before Mardi Gras (i.e no later than March 1st or 2nd and staying through Ash Wednesday, March 6th). Arriving at that time will ensure you catch the most popular parades, like Endymion, Bacchus, Zulu, Rex and all of the festive celebrations throughout the whole city.
Mardi Gras, or "Fat Tuesday," is the last day of the Carnival season as it always falls the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Most visitors will plan to arrive no later than Saturday, March 2, 2019, in order to enjoy an extended weekend of festivities.
Family Gras 2019 will be Friday, February 22 - Saturday, February 23. This is a free celebration of carnival in Metairie with outdoor concerts by both national artists and Louisiana's own artists. Check out their website for more info!
