Feb. 26, 2014
La Crosse Mardi Gras is a family-oriented celebration uniting the families of La Crosse and surrounding communities in fun, food, and fellowship for a good cause. Since 1991, Mardi Gras has helped provide tuition assistance for the families of Aquinas Catholic Schools (ACS).
Mardi Gras Ball
As with the Mardi Gras festivals in Louisiana, La Crosse Mardi Gras is centered around a Rex and Queen and their faithful “Krewes of Carnivale,” each represented by a Lord and Lady. There is one krewe for each of the local Catholic parishes involved in ACS: Blessed Sacrament, Cathedral, Holy Trinity, Mary, Mother of the Church, Roncalli Newman Center and St. Patrick’s. These krewes, along with the reigning Rex and Queen, make Mardi Gras a very special event. Each year, the krewes creatively reinvent themselves with innovative themes. See the Event Schedule for details, or Order Tickets now.
