What To Expect

Mardi Gras + Jamaica = Marley Gras
New Orleans and Jamaican culture are so intertwined that it’s only fitting that we have a festival that beautifully blends the two together. Marley Gras celebrates both in a way that only New Orleans can, seamlessly blending Reggae with Brass and Bounce, Jerk chicken with Ya-ka-mein and gumbo, and handmade arts and crafts from New Orleans and Jamaica.
