Tis' The Season

2016 Carnival Parade Schedule



In most years, the day after of the Epiphany is a little early to worry about parade schedules, but Mardi Gras comes early in 2015. So, the floats will be rolling in a couple of weeks. Even with a fairly fixed schedule, the dozens of options (combined with the seasonal libations) can make it all a little confusing. So, NoDef offers our annaul guide to the Carnival parades.

The Algiers Bonfire is lighting the way for the sleigh tonight (12.06,) but the bells will alerady be ringing this afternoon. In the CBD, the Krewe of Jingle steps out for a holiday-flavored parade through the center of New Orleans. Check out the route:


Updated: Sunday Parades: Original Big 7 Mother's Day Second Line, Downtown Super Sunday


UPDATED, May 11, 2:02 p.m.: Downtown Super Sunday has been postponed due to weather. On Mother's Day, the Original Big 7 Social Aide and Pleasure Club returns to the 7th Ward streets on Sunday (5-11) for their annual second line. Mardi Gras Indians will also be steppin' out for Downtown Super Sunday.


Downtown Irish Club Parade Marks St. Patrick's Day


Happy St. Patrick's Day, New Orleans! The streets were filled with green over the weekend, but one Club ensures that there's still a reason to celebrate on St. Patrick's feast day, itself. The Downtown Irish Club is set to step off from Bywater's Bud Rip's at 6 p.m., and head for Bourbon St.


Parade Planner: Routes, Weather for Krewes of Iris, Tucks, Endymion


A pair of daytime parades Uptown give way to Mid-City's time to shine on Saturday night. Iris and Tucks preserve elegance and satire, respectively. Then, Endymion once again tests whether there's any limit to the size of a Carnival parade.


Downtown Parade Planner: Routes, Info for 'tit Rəx, Krewe of Chewbacchus


The Krewe of Freret’s inaugural roll will be chock full of locally made beads and trinkets Uptown, but there's plenty of local action to catch parade-wise below Canal as well. In the Marigny-Bywater, ‘tit r?x and Chewbacchus are the main attractions for Saturday night (2-22). The microkrewe rolls at 5 p.m., followed by the Intergalactic revelers at 8 p.m.


Robot Parade & Ball Rolls in Bywater


Fans of the automated arts can bundle up with their finest cardboard boxes for today’s Robot Parade and Ball. While there is still time to catch the parade in the Bywater, time may be better spent prepping for tonight’s Robot Ball at the Old Ironworks (612 Piety Street), taking place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. 


Krewe of Jingle Marches Merry in CBD


The Algiers Bonfire is lighting the way for the sleigh tonight, but the bells will alerady be ringing this afternoon. In the CBD, the Krewe of Jingle steps out for a holiday-flavored parade through the center of New Orleans. Check out the route:


Second Line Sunday: Black Men of Labor, Men and Ladies of Class


With two clubs parading and Treme Culture Fest putting on a United Second Line, there's no excuse not to run into a parade on Sunday in New Orleans.

Second Line Sunday: Prince of Wales March on Magazine, Uptown


With the Saints set for a late afternoon start on Sunday, there's plenty of time to take in a second line before cheering on the Black and Gold. Luckily, this weekend features one of Uptown's most-anticipated parades of the year, as the Prince of Wales head from Tchoupitoulas to Central City.
