The 2023 Mardi Gras calendar of parades in Baton Rouge

Correction: This article has been updated since its original publication to fix the date for the Krewe Mystique de la Capitale parade. 225 regrets the error.

Save these dates—it’s time for Mardi Gras parades around town. We’ve organized them chronologically, so all you have to do is write them down in your planner (or screenshot this article). If you’re a Mardi Gras super fan, some krewes have already released their themes, so it may be time to start planning your outfit, too.

For final parade details and updates, check the krewe’s websites and social media closer to dates.
