Experience Mardi Gras like you never could before! Since 1947, our artists and craftsmen have designed and built the oldest and biggest parade floats and attractions for each Mardi Gras season, with over 500 floats built and decorated each year. When you begin your Mardi Gras World tour, you’ll get an overview of the history of Mardi Gras in New Orleans before our guides take you through our float den, where our artists work year-round to build spectacular floats and props. You never get this close to the floats while they’re rolling in Mardi Gras parades, and this is certainly the only place to see how these amazing pieces come to life each year. When you’re sightseeing in New Orleans or looking for fascinating tours in New Orleans, this is something you just can’t miss. Come see where the Mardi Gras magic is made!

Things to see: 

- Working warehouse filled with floats, props, and a glimpse into the artist’s studios

- Costumes and photo ops

- A free slice of King Cake!

Fun Facts:

• More than 500,000 King Cakes are sold each year in New Orleans between January 6 and Fat Tuesday

• One of the most popular – and most photographed – floats in all of Mardi Gras is the Boeuf Gras (the fatted bull) float in the Rex parade
