Downtown Tupelo Mardi Gras

Street Party & Cajun Fest

Nautical Whimsey, KOK, DownUnder, Amsterdam, and Vanellis have combined forces to bring Mardi Gras to Downtown Tupelo!

On Saturday, February 22, find your way to downtown Tupelo and enjoy a Mardi Gras parade, drink specials, cajun food, and so much more!

Main Street will be closed down for the party — from Front street to Broadway will be blocked off.

Nautical Whimsey will be having their 10th annual Mardi Gras crawfish and shrimp boil.

Blacktop Ridge & The Blind Eye DJ will be jammin’ in the street!

There will be a Fortune Teller & Photo Booth on hand, too!

Bring your beads and plan on a party to remember!

The parade will start at 6PM on the corner at Tupelo Hardware and run two blocks, ending on the corner at JMB Attorneys’ Office..

Chad & Nicky McMahan are Mardi Gras King & Queen!

All parade participants are asked to meet for lineup at 5 PM, somewhere in the vicinity of Tupelo Hardware.

Cost for this event: It’s free to attend and enjoy! There WILL be $5 wristbands for alcohol, and of course, if you choose to buy anything (like food or drinks or merch) from vendors.

Hailing from the backwoods of north Mississippi, MyLove Barnett spent a decade tripping up the corporate ladder as an accountant before trading in her stilettos and pencil skirts for jeans and flip flops and the privilege of working for various platforms as a writer, editor, and content manager. Although she has an MBA and a BS in accounting, she's found her passion falls more in the creative arts of writing and graphic design. She lives, writes, and raises hell on the outskirts of Tupelo in the small community of Nettleton.
