laissez les bon temps rouler!

Let the good times roll... Fat Tuesday is just around the corner and Buffalo is going to be celebrating New Orleans style as Artvoice presents its 19th annual Mardi Gras Parade and Festival.

Artvoice will join forces with their sponsor Magic Hat to throw the biggest Mardi Gras party in the Northeast!

On Fat Tuesday (March 4th), Historic Allentown and surrounding areas will become Buffalo's own French Quarter. Start partying at 5pm when the parade takes an all new route down Allen St, and keep partying until we get kicked out!

Visit any participating venue and purchase a bracelet for $5 - your bracelet gains you admission (and beads!) to that, and any other participating venue, all night long. Proceeds this year will benefit ECMC's Immunodeficiency Services, the largest HIV/AIDS care center in Western New York.
