Pensacola Grand Mardi Gras Parade
March 2 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Pensacola Grand Mardi Gras Parade is annually the largest and most extravagant parade in Pensacola. This parade is the largest gathering of people in the city throughout the year. Attendees and participants number in the hundreds of thousands. The Grand Mardi Gras Parade features most of the Krewes from the area, local organizations, companies, and everything from marching bands to Scout groups. And, many parade entrants come from out of town as well. There are over 6,000 people who participate in the parade and often over 100,000 people in attendance. It is broadcast live on local TV and coverage also includes radio, print, and social media with a reach of literally millions.
The route of the parade is on Palafox and Garden Streets in historic downtown Pensacola. It will start at 2:00pm and continue until around 6:00pm on Saturday, March 2, 2019. See the parade route here!
The Grand Mardi Gras Parade is by far the the largest event of Mardi Gras and Downtown Pensacola annually, and will prove to be the highlight of the season again this year.
