Feb. 3 — 9, 2014

Charleston Mardi Gras is a week-long affair, with parades, art showings, street fairs, live music and royal announcements in the downtown Charleston area. We are now preparing for our fifth-annual week of Carnival celebrations and Grand Masquerade Ball to celebrate the history and culture of Mardi Gras on the East Coast. Laissez les bon temps roulet!

Experience the Excitement

Watch the highlights from our inaugural Grand Masquerade Ball, which had more than 500 people in attendance! From setup to sundown, we have a blast putting on Charleston’s glitziest show, and we know you will have just as much fun as a grand guest to any of our events! See our Charleston Mardi Gras 2014 events lineup for all the ways you can experience the excitement with friends and family this year!
