The Grand Mardi Gras Parade features most of the Krewes from the area, local organizations and companies and everything from marching bands to Scout groups. Many parade entrants come from out of town as well.
The parade has over 6000 people who participate in the parade, often over 100,000 t the parade. Media coverage is tremendous with the largest parade than we do, but none have any bigger. The parade is broadcast live on local TV and coverage of the parade including radio, TV, print, and social media has a reach of literally millions.
The parade takes place on Palafox and Garden Streets in historic downtown Pensacola. The Parade starts at 2:00pm and continues until around 6:00pm.

Pensacola Mardi Gras Inc. is postponing the 2021 Season Kick-Off Celebration and Blessing of the Krewe Fleets event previously scheduled on January 8th, 2021. This year, the event will be moved to the month of May and will kick-off an even larger Pensacola “Carnivale Celebration.”
“We want to have the best Mardi Gras experience for our wonderful Krewes of Pensacola, in the safest way possible for the entire community,” said Danny Zimmern, President of Pensacola Mardi Gras, Inc. “This year, that is just going to look a little different from the experience we all know and love, as we celebrate together in Carnivale”
The decision to postpone derived from many long and detailed conversations between Pensacola Mardi Gras, the Mayor, and City Staff with focus centered on public health. Due to the current rising number of virus cases, the team members of Pensacola Mardi Gras Inc. and the City of Pensacola staff agreed that postponing the event was the most responsible course of action. This decision was difficult but will not mean a cancellation of ceremonies for Pensacola’s great Krewes and a Grand Parade. Postponing means a slight change in celebration, but means we gather as Krewes and citizens to celebrate together.
“The spike in hospitalizations makes a postponement of celebrations logical” says Mayor Grover Robinson. “At City Hall, we recognize how important the community of our great Krewes is, and we want to celebrate all together. We look forward to gathering after this pause, outside and being socially responsible at Roger Scott, and in the historic streets of Downtown.”
The one-time, unique 2021 Carnivale Celebration will begin in May and is set to include a Kick-Off celebration to ignite the experience, as well as a Grand Parade, and a few other unique and exciting experiences inspired by the local krewes, and will lead into Pensacola’s celebration of its history, Fiesta. The Grand Fiesta Parade will be on Friday June 4, 2021.
For those who have already purchased tickets to the original Kick-Off event, all tickets remain valid for the 2021 Carnivale Kick-Off Celebration in May and will include a unique gift from the Pensacola Mardi Gras Inc. team as a special thank-you for your support in 2020 during a unique year that we have all been forced to deal with. This includes VIPs and VIP upgrades. All ticket buyers will receive direct email correspondence in the coming days, which will provide more information.
The 2021 Kick-Off will take place in the same location and will include the traditional Blessing of the Krewes along with a concert style dance party featuring beverages and food. Tickets to the 2021 Carnivale Kick-Off Celebration will again be available for purchase starting on February 1, 2021 on the Pensacola Mardi Gras website. Beginning on February 1, 2021, tickets will be re-priced at $50 for general admission and $120 for VIP tickets, which will be limited in number. More details regarding what is included in the ticket purchase will be announced.
Pensacola Mardi Gras is not cancelled, it is postponed, and Pensacola is following other Gulf Coast Communities in re-envisioning a classic celebration of our community, Krewes, and customs. A series of events will tie multiple celebrations together, with a Kick-Off in the end of May, (the precise date of the Kick-Off Celebration and Blessing of the Krewes will be announced soon) a Grand Carnivale Parade (replacing the Grand Mardi Gras Parade) on Saturday May 29, 2021 (Memorial Weekend), Fiesta Days on Wednesday June 2, 2021 and the Grand Fiesta Parade on Friday June 4, 2021.
Although the 2021 Mardi Gras Kick-Off event is being moved to the summer, the spirit of Mardi Gras will once again fill Pensacola as Krewes and patrons alike will gather to celebrate a mini-Carnivale season. The headliners and performers will carry over into the Carnivale Celebration to provide entertainment at the outdoor venue.
The Carnivale Kick-Off and Grand Parade will still be a series of socially responsible events that include masks (Laisse le Masque le Faire!), socially distanced seating and dance areas, temperature checks at the entrances, and all transactions including entrance and purchases will be cashless using a special RFID technology.
