Family fun Carnival festival will return to Federal City for third-annual event
(New Orleans) – Today, event officials announced the return of the popular Algiers Mardi Gras fest for its third-annual Mardi Gras soiree. The 2023 annual family fun festival will take place on Saturday, February 4 at Federal City. Officials plan to hold a special press conference on Wednesday, January 4 at 10:30 a.m. in Federal City to unveil the 2023 poster and announce the Grand Marshal along with additional details of the event such as entertainment, food and more.

The free and family-friendly festival aims to bring Mardi Gras to the historic Algiers neighborhood just across the mighty Mississippi River from downtown New Orleans. First held in 2020, the festival is returning for a third time after being cancelled in 2021 due to COVID-19.

“We’re ecstatic to welcome revelers back to historic Algiers for the third-annual Algiers Mardi Gras Festival,” said event founder and CEO Oscar Rainey. “Our first two festivals were huge hits with families, and we’re committed to bring it back even bigger and better in 2023. We invite everyone out for what will surely become the best free festival in all New Orleans.”

A poster contest is open to all Algiers-area high school students. Artwork must be submitted to algiersmardigrasfestival@gmail.com no later than Friday, December 9, 2022.
