Mardi Gras Seattle, Mardi Gras Portland, and other Pacific Northwest Mardi Gras Events

Updated for 2020! If you can’t travel to New Orleans and celebrate Mardi Gras cajun style, you can celebrate it Cascadia style! This post has been changed from its original format. It’s now a growing list of events for Mardi Gras Seattle 2020, Mardi Gras Portland, or other Pacific Northwest Mardi Gras events as well.  If you know of an additional Pacific Northwest Mardi Gras event you think should be included here, you can click here to add it to our calendar.

Laissez les bons temps rouler! The Mardi Gras catchphrase means, literally, “Let the Good Times Roll.” If you didn’t know, the proper response to this is, “Oui, cher.” With my poor French I self-translated this to “Yeah! Expensive!” but Google Translate tells me this means, “Yes, dear,” which sounds like the catchphrase of benighted husbands. I like the interpretation of this post better: “Yeah. You right.”

If you can’t get to the Big Easy and want to let the good times roll around the Emerald City or the Rose City, here are some places to do so. And most of them are not trés cher (very expensive). But get some Mardi Gras Swag before you head out. Yeah. You right.

So, here are some Mardi Gras Seattle as well as Portland and greater PNW Mardi Gras events for this year. Let the good times roll!

There are no upcoming events at this time
