No matter how you like to celebrate Mardi Gras, there’s a party for you in the Charlotte area. Here’s a list of events that are free or cheap to attend. Drinks are on you, but you can expect to find some drink specials at many of these events.
Besides the parties, there’s also a kid-friendly Mardi Gras Bike Parade, and a Gumbo contest, where you can be the taster and judge!
This list will be continually updated, so if you know if an event that should be listed, let us know!
