Where to Celebrate Mardi Gras 2016 in Baltimore

With the blizzard behind us, it’s now time to start sipping Hurricanes. Mardi Gras is on the horizon, and in true Charm City style, the parties are starting a few days early, and running through the holiday itself. Get your beads on, Baltimore. 

Cafe Troia

This spot in the heart of Towson is starting the party early with a celebration on Friday, February 5, with king cake and cocktail specials. Beads encouraged. (31 Allegheny Ave., Towson; 410-337-0133)

Power Plant Live!

Also a few days before Fat Tuesday itself, the 7th Annual Mardi Gras Festival is happening February 6 at Power Plant Live!. Not only will the festival feature a float parade, Cirque-style performances, and live Zydeco music, but food options inspired by the holiday will abound. Bring your beads for tossing from the balcony. Tickets include bottomless Southern Comfort Hurricanes, select domestics, party favors, and entrance into nine of the venue’s bars/restaurants from 9 PM–12 AM. Tickets are available here. (34 Market Pl.; 410-727-5483)

Starting at 7 PM on February 9, the newly opened Mt. Vernon Marketplace is welcoming Mardi Gras revelers to party on Fat Tuesday to the backdrop of live jazz by Big Bertha’s Rhythm Kings and join in the Crawfish Boil at the Local Oyster as well as drink and food specials throughout the market. Come in costume (masquerade masks encouraged) for the chance to win prizes from vendors. (520 Park Ave.)
