And thank you Portland for such an amazing 2018 Mardi Gras Ball!!!
Save the date! The 2018 Mardi Gras Ball is February 10th, 2018 – the Saturday before Mardi Gras! We’ll be at the same place as the 2017 Ball – the beautiful Tiffany Center Emerald Ballroom in downtown Portland.
The Mardi Gras Ball is an annual 21 and over costume party to celebrate Carnival in Portland! For those of us who can’t make it to New Orleans, it’s the next best thing! Live music, fun costumes, King Cake, Mardi Gras Royalty, costume contest, second line parading, and all manner of surprises await. Costumes encouraged but not required. Come join the Mysti Krewe of Nimbus for a night of dancing and joie de vivre!
We also have a free, family-friendly Mardi Gras Day Parade on Tuesday, February 13th – the actual 2018 Mardi Gras Day!
The Portland Mardi Gras Ball is organized by the Mysti Krewe of Nimbus, a Louisiana style Mardi Gras Krewe. When it’s not Carnival Season, you can catch the Krewe at the Starlight Parade and Safeway Waterfront Blues Fest. We also help organize a Mardi Gras Day Parade on Mississippi Avenue on Fat Tuesday.
