2021 Celebration

Mardi Gras looks a little different this year! Here’s how we’re celebrating:

Well due to weather we’re postponing events! We will try to reschedule for Tuesday Mardi Gras Day!

Enjoy Fat Tuesday despite Covid-19 in a safe and responsible way!

Downtown Dots on Mardi Gras Day:

Be on the lookout in Downtown as the annual Mardi Gras Day Parade takes over the dots. This annual event, typically held on Mississippi Avenue, will take over Polka Dot Downtown on Tuesday, February 16th!  So be sure to follow the Square on Facebook and Instagram to learn about when to mask up and head Downtown on February 16th to see traditional Mardi Gras performances and events ‘pop up’ on the Dots Downtown.

We couldn’t have as much fun without the support of local businesses! We’ve distributed our signature mini-umbrella Parade throws to our partners listed below:

They will hand them out between Friday Feb. 12th through Mardi Gras Day! Be sure to visit, have some delicious Southern food, buy something nice for yourself, and pass a good time!
