Yes. Please click here to find your order and resend the receipt email. These emails are sent from tickets@MardiGrasParadeTickets.com. Please be sure to add this email address to your address book to reduce the risk that your spam filter will block it.
Are Handicapped Accessible tickets offered?
Yes, numerous handicapped viewing locations are available in all zones. These are typically spaces at the front rail, or on the front row, without obstruction. These spaces are marked with the symbol, but are not "reserved in advance" so early arrival is requested. When you purchase tickets, please let us know of your handicapped needs.
What time do the parades actually arrive at the stands?
The parades generally arrive at the stands 1-2 hours after the start time on the ticket. But this is not an exact science, sometimes the parades roll fast, sometimes slow. Because our stands are General Admittance, not reserved seats and because police often close some street access early, it’s best to arrive as close to the start time as possible, and enjoy the wait in the stands. Plenty of food and beverage options in the area.
Are Vaccines required to enter the viewing stands?
Yes – all patrons 5 years and older must provide proof of COVID Vaccination - or - Negative Covid Test results 72 hours or less.
Are masks required to be worn in the stands?
At this time this is not a City requirement, but bring a mask, just in case. Masks could be a requirement by Mardi Gras parade time.
Are masks required to be worn in the VIP Tent?
Yes – as per city requirement, masks are required in indoor spaces.
