Have you ever experienced Mardi Gras in Jefferson, Texas?

Confession, I only really go to Jefferson, Texas for the epic barbecue that they serve up at Riverport BBQ. However, there will be an epic party taking up the entire historical town this weekend.

Mardi Gras Upriver in Jefferson, Texas Takes Over Thursday, March 24th Through Saturday, March 26th.

The Krewe of Hebe has been bringing Mardi Gras festivities to Jefferson for 33 years and this year the party will be bigger than ever. With the pandemic killing the festivities last year, they don't plan to stop the fun, not even the rain can kill the buzz of Mardi Gras Upriver.

From some of your favorite boutiques to some of your favorite carnival food vendors, they will all be out there eager to hang out with you. Vendors will set up around 10:00 am both Friday and Saturday and go until sold out.
