The year 2038 is the next year that Mardi Gras day and the Irish Channel St. Patrick’s Day parade will be on the same week. Invite your friends!
The Irish Channel parade is always the Saturday before St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) while Mardi Gras is simply the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, which is always 46 days before Easter, which falls on the exact date to coincide with the first Sunday after the full moon following a spring equinox.
Event details to come sometime in the next 20 years. Stay tuned!
