There is no way to produce our normal calendar of Soulard Mardi Gras events safely in the midst of a pandemic. We always strive to produce events that are both fun and safe. In 2021, that means virtual, online events or other events that fully comply with local, state and federal public health guidelines. We want everyone to be safe, stay healthy and be around for Mardi Gras 2022.
