Red River Mardi Gras Bash

February 23, 2019

The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau will be hosting the 13th Annual Red River Mardi Gras Bash in downtown Shreveport, Louisiana during the Krewe of Centaur Parade XXVIII. The party, an American Bus Association Top 100 Event, starts at 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 23, 2019.

Groups will enjoy this exclusive party and front row experience to the Krewe of Centaur parade – one of the largest Mardi Gras parades in Louisiana. The climate-controlled party tent is located along the riverfront, and tickets to the bash include live entertainment, savory Cajun and Creole food, king cake, a commemorative Mardi Gras bead and t-shirt, and several hands-on experiences. Once the parade takes off, groups can see brightly colored floats, marching bands, outrageous Mardi Gras personalities, and, of course, catch some beads.

Tickets to the event are $40 per person and the event is open only to groups of 10 or more. Everyone in attendance must be at least 21 years old.
