The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau is returning to Plano, Texas to host their annual Shreveport-Bossier Mardi Gras Pop-Up Party on Thursday, Jan. 23 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at event1013, located at 1013 E. 15th Street in Historic Downtown Plano Arts District. This free party will include live music by Shreveport’s underground band, Muzikology, authentic Louisiana cuisine prepared by Chef Damien “Chapeaux” Chapman of Orlandeaux’s Café, cash bar and door prizes, as well as king cake samples from Lilah’s Bakery, Lowder Baking Company and Tubbs Hardware & Rental.
The purpose of the Shreveport-Bossier Mardi Gras Pop-Up Party is to give Texas neighbors a fun, free taste of Carnival season in Northwest Louisiana. This year, Shreveport-Bossier’s biggest parade weekends are Feb. 14-16 and Feb 21-23, but Mardi Gras parties, parades, and events are already underway. Shreveport-Bossier offers a variety of experiences ranging from low-key, neighborhood parades to the popular Krewe of Centaur and Krewe of Gemini parades, which are attended by more than half a million parade-goers each year. Last year’s Mardi Gras spurred an economic impact of nearly $23 million.
All attendees will receive a copy of the all-new 2020 Gris Gris Guide to Mardi Gras in Shreveport-Bossier. It is the ultimate handbook that navigates locals and visitors through six parade routes, eight grand balls, six king cake bakeries, seven authentic Louisiana restaurants and more. This 20-page, photo-forward guide is a handheld jewel that steers its users through all-things Mardi Gras in the Shreveport-Bossier area from early January through late February. Free copies of the Gris Gris Guide are also available at the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau, located at 629 Spring Street in downtown Shreveport.
