2022 Pensacola Mardi Gras Kick-Off Event

One of Pensacola’s largest outdoor parties is BACK DOWNTOWN!

Celebrate the beginning of Mardi Gras at the 2022 Twelfth Night Party featuring live music, food, drink and revelry in the city’s largest STREET PARTY!

And now, it’s back in Downtown Pensacola, taking over South Jefferson Street right in the heart of Downtown Pensacola.

With free public access to the Mardi Gras Floats lined up along Jefferson Street , this party promises to be the new must attend Mardi Gras Street Party.

Party with the Krewes — PUBLIC INVITED!

The official Kick-Off will begin inside Seville Quarter at 5 p.m. on Friday Jan. 7, and honor T. Bubba Bechtol, Pensacola Mardi Gras Town Crier. Floats will be parked on Jefferson St. south of Romana St. all the way down to Zarragossa, and Government Street between Palafox and Tarragona Streets.

After opening ceremonies with the Royal Processional and honoring of T. Bubba, a Second Line Processional of Royalty will walk the float route and bless the floats.

Thanks to the generous donors who are making this celebration possible: Visit Pensacola, Wind Creek Casino, Catalyst Healthcare Real Estate, the East Garden District, Seville Quarter, Adams Homes, Highpointe Hotels, Kool Graphics, The Lewis Bear Company, SKYY Vodka / Southern Wine and Spirits Buffalo Rock, Buggy Worx, Sunbelt Rentals, and Perfect Plain Brewing Co.
