Lundi Gras

Riverwalk’s 34th Annual Lundi Gras

The Riverwalk’s 34th Annual Lundi Gras at Spanish Plaza is a New Orleans tradition, taking place the day before Fat Tuesday. The 2020 celebration is particularly special as Lundi Gras also marks the official re-opening of the renovated Spanish Plaza! Celebrate the season with local food and live music from New Orleans’ favorite performers, including Dj Rob Nice, Dash Rip Rock and Cowboy Mouth.

What You Need To Know

This FREE and open to the public event features live music from some of New Orleans’ favorite performers, local food and drink vendors, and a fireworks display on the Mississippi. The event culminates with the arrival of Rex, King of Carnival, and his entourage aboard elegantly decorated vintage railroad cars. Upon arrival, Rex greets thousands of visitors who have traditionally gathered along the river to watch the processions, while welcoming the King of Zulu.

The Mayor of New Orleans traditionally takes the stage to hand over the keys to city to Rex, who declares Fat Tuesday a day of fun and revelry for all. The ceremony is then followed by an extravagant firework display over the River, prior to Monday night parades rolling through downtown New Orleans.
