Art Cars Jazz Up San Diego Mardi Gras in the Gaslamp Quarter!

Why be ordinary when you can be extraordinary? After 23 years, Gaslamp Mardi Gras continues to be at the forefront of creative surprises for attendees, making it the preferred Mardi Gras hot-spot to spend Fat Tuesday, February 28th. Three stages of music fire up at 5 pm and run non-stop through midnight, with the parade stepping off at 9pm.

For most people, a stage is just a stage, and remains a standard set up with few expectations. Gaslamp Mardi Gras is looking to change the standard of this seemingly ordinary offering by bringing out epic, over the top vibrant art car stages for this year’s event. Imagine partying next to a two-story unicorn, a neon pink flamingo, or a giant scarab beetle housing a DJ in the air. Fat Tuesday is your chance! With surprises around every turn, you will not see another Mardi Gras quite like this one.
