20th Annual Burlington Vermont Mardi Gras

20th Annual Burlington Vermont Mardi Gras

Just around the corner is one of the biggest events of the year here in Burlington Vermont, the 20th annual Mardi Gras celebration brought to you by Magic Hat Brewing. All events during this weekend serve to bring awareness and support to the Vermont Foodbank, which a lot of people may not know. Over the years, Magic Hat Mardi Gras weekend has raised more than $225,000 for the Vermont community...even more of a reason to enjoy this fantastic event.

Now, this is not just a one day event with a parade, it is a weekend extravaganza that just so happens to include a parade which extends the whole length of Church St. with floats, music, bead throwing and excitement. The parade just kicks off the evenings festivities on Saturday that will go through the night which include performances by The Grippo Funk Band on the City Hall Stage and many bars and Restaurants in the Downtown area celebrating together. Lets not forget about the official Mardi Gras kick off party at Higher Ground the night before with an explosive performance by Gogol Bordello, a notional act that just happens to include a local Vermont native.

Other events through the weekend include the always fun king and queen costume contest, performers from the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus perform along Church Street, the Winter Bazaar in City Hall Park featuring local food and arts. And when you are recovering from the partying from the night before, enjoy some of the many Burlington eateries with a fabulous Sunday Brunch. The Mardi Gras site recommends, Ake's Place, Finnigans, Ruben James, Sweetwaters, and the Church Street tavern, but I would recommend my favorite...keep it old school with Henry's Diner!
