Welcome to Eureka Springs very own Mardi Gras!

Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler à Eureka Springs, Arkansas!ESMGLogo (Let the good times roll in Eureka Springs, Arkansas!)

We invite everyone to come join us in celebrating Mardi Gras, Eureka Springs style!

Join in the fun, watch the parade, get a taste of New Orleans, dress up and join the masquerade. It is all about having a good time at Eureka Springs Mardi Gras! The Krewe of Krazo was the first Krewe to start the revelry in Eurekas Springs and, as has happened in so many other cities, we have several Krewes adding to the fun such as the Krewe du Kork, the Krewe du Bon Repos and for our Fur Babies, the Krewe of Barkus! So much more to come!

It is our goal to promote year-round activities and events in Eureka Springs, AR and the surrounding areas. We want to encourage local citizens and businesses to participate in events and have fun.

Mardi gras is a Carnival of activities that starts in January and goes into February, sometimes until March. We are becoming an anchor for a Super Mardi Gras celebration comprising many states.

Take a moment to look around the website, check out our annual events, look for updates on the progress of next year’s Eureka Mardi Gras, check out our sponsors’ page, and just get a taste of what we have to offer.
