Taste of Mardi Gras
February 6, 2015 @ 7:30 pm$20
Taste of Mardi Gras will be held on Friday, February 6, 2015, at the Alexandria Riverfront Center. Taste of Mardi Gras was created in 1997 as a fundraiser for the Cenla Chapter of the Louisiana Restaurant Association. The first year, it was held in conjunction with the grand opening of the Alexandria Riverfront Center. It has grown tremendously from approximately 350 in attendance to over 3,500. The date of the event coincides with the Alexandria Mardi Gras weekend to offer visitors a Friday night event immediately following the CC/CC parade offering visitors another reason to come early to celebrate Mardi Gras in the Heart of Louisiana.
