Fayetteville Mardi Gras Parade
  • Event date: 2024-02-10

The annual Fat Saturday Parade of Fools will march through downtown on Saturday, February 10, 2024.

Dust off your Mardi Gras best and gather your Krewe, floats and beads! The family-friendly traditional Parade of Fools will once again kick off the Mardi Gras celebration in Fayetteville, AR at 2:00pm on the Historic Downtown Square and then head down Block Avenue and Dickson Street. 

Get ready for krewes and paraders with an abundance of costumes, floats, and multicolor beads!

Mardi Gras has been celebrated in downtown Fayetteville with Fat Tuesday on Dickson Street for at least 30 years! Within a decade, the Fat Saturday Parade of Fools became tradition, now rolling every year on the Saturday before Fat Tuesday. This year, Fat Tuesday festivities will take place on February 13.




While the parade is tons of fun to watch, it's even more fun to participate. Any person, group, or business is welcome to enter the annual Mardi Gras Parade in Fayetteville! Find more information or register your Krewe online at fayettevillemardigras.com.
