Join us on February 16, 2019 from 2PM – 10PM for ArtiGras at Railroad Square Art Park.
Our annual spring festival, ArtiGras (FREE), is similar to Mardi Gras in New Orleans. It is comprised of food & crafts vendors, activities, art exhibitions, stage performances preceded by dance lessons, and a parade around Railroad Square. Led by a brass band, the parade includes groups and individuals who have created their own costumes or small floats, decorated their cars, or dressed up their dogs. ArtiGras makes a special effort to educate Southside students about the Creole cultures of the South that have Mardi Gras traditions (i.e., New Orleans and S.W. Louisiana, Mobile, and Apalachicola).
