Family Gras is a FREE celebration of Carnival and family just ten minutes from downtown New Orleans. With crowds surpassing 80,000 each year, it’s big family fun just outside the Big Easy!
The event takes place every year on the neutral ground of Veterans Memorial Boulevard, across from Lakeside Shopping Center in Metairie. Bring your kids to enjoy the traditional spectacle of Mardi Gras parades, authentic New Orleans cuisine, local art at the Art Market, a Kids Court with face painting and interactive games, and free outdoor concerts by both national artists and Louisiana's own.
