Gaslamp Quarter Mardi Gras Masquerade Parade & Celebration
Fat Tuesday is February 28th, right around the corner, and for the 23rd year the Gaslamp Quarter Mardi Gras Parade will be the place to be in San Diego. This year Gaslamp Mardi Gras will be celebrating the extraordinary as confetti cannons boom, beads are thrown, bass is bumping, and the world famous Gaslamp Quarter Mardi Gras Parade rolls down Fifth Avenue. Three stages of music fire up at 5 pm and run non-stop through midnight, with the parade stepping off at 9pm.
For most people, a stage is just a stage, and remains a standard set up with few expectations. Gaslamp Mardi Gras is looking to change the standard of this seemingly ordinary offering by bringing out epic, over the top vibrant art car stages for this year’s event. Imagine partying next to a two-story unicorn, a neon pink flamingo, or a giant scarab beetle housing a DJ in the air. Fat Tuesday is your chance! With surprises around every turn, you will not see another Mardi Gras quite like this one.
Check out the King Club Unicorn Stage for trap and big bass music that will get your beads bouncing, featuring Diamond Pistols, Contrvbvnd, DJ Diva Danielle, Hotfire, BAKES, Boys Don’t Disco, DJ IDEAL, CIRESS, and DJ Byrd. Get ready to go back in time at The Krewe Du Vieux Flamingo Stage presented by Fluxx which will feature 90’s Electo-Mashup sets from Hickies and Dry Humps, Eric Medina, and Baile do Victinho. The Open-Format Canal Street Scarab Stage presented by Global BPM and Henry’s Pub will be featuring DJ YODAH, Christopher London, DJ Kurty, and Wolfgang Alexander.
