Ready or not, it’s Mardi Gras time once again and Eureka Springs’ own version of the event, Eureka Gras 2023, is already up and running with a host of fun and fantastic events to attend. Parties, parades, coronations, masked balls, and more, January 14th through February 21st, 2023.
Eureka Springs knows how to party and Mardi Gras may be the biggest, annual party around! Local Krewes work for months, sometimes all year, on making Eureka Gras one of the most colorful and entertaining events of the year.
2023 will be no exception with day, night, and pooch parades, masquerade and coronation balls, costume parties, culinary events, and more. The Night Parade, February 11th, and Day Parade, February 18th, are the biggest draws with floats, walkers, dancers, marching bands, and more.
While many Eureka Gras events are free and open to the public, others are ticketed and may already be sold out. Check the schedule below for more details and don’t hesitate to purchase tickets now, while they’re still available.
