Shreveport, LA – Get ready to immerse your group in the vibrant spirit of Mardi Gras with the 18th Annual Red River Mardi Gras Bash hosted by the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau. This exclusive event takes place during the Krewe of Centaur and Krewe of Gemini parades in downtown Shreveport on Saturday, February 3, and Saturday, February 10, 2024.

A VIP Mardi Gras Experience for Your Group

The Red River Mardi Gras Bash provides a unique and unforgettable Mardi Gras encounter, offering VIP treatment and exclusive “behind-the-scenes” access for groups during two of the largest Mardi Gras parades in Louisiana. Attendees will revel in the festivities with live music, authentic Cajun cuisine, king cake, and receive a commemorative Mardi Gras bead and more.

Parade Day Highlights

Before the parades kick off, Mardi Gras Bash guests will have the chance to meet krewe royalty and enjoy guided tours of the parade route. As the parades commence, the Mardi Gras Bash area transforms into a spectacle of colors, as beads, trinkets, and toys are joyfully thrown by krewe members aboard colossal, brightly adorned floats. Post-parade, groups often extend the celebration by exploring nearby nightlife and trying their luck at the casinos located just blocks away from the Mardi Gras Bash venue.
