2018 Mardi Gras Parade at The Wharf @ Wharf Street, District Pier | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

Who needs New Orleans? Come celebrate Fat Tuesday with a Wharf-wide extravaganza featuring a spirited parade along the waterfront, followed by a dance party on District Pier, and a fireworks finale. The parade will be set to the sounds of classic NOLA brass band music and feature custom-designed floats from our Wharf friends, restaurants, and retailers, along with high-flying balloons and, of course, bead tossing. Plus, festive food and drink will be available throughout the neighborhood at all your favorite hangouts in honor of Mardi Gras.

So brush up on your bead catching skills and get ready to party the night away!
