Create some magic… Host your event at Mardi Gras World!

Bring the spirit of Carnival to your special event by hosting it at Mardi Gras World, New Orleans’ top tourist attraction. With a variety of event spaces to choose from, Mardi Gras World is the perfect venue for hosting everything from weddings and concerts to corporate events and team building retreats. Since 1947, Blaine Kern Studios has built the magnificent floats that define the magic of Mardi Gras. Now you can bring that magic to your own event!

Located next door to Mardi Gras World’s float-building warehouse, our events complex contains an impressive array of venues that will suit any occasion you can imagine. Situated on the Mississippi River, amongst the awe-inspiring parade floats, Mardi Gras World will give your guests a once-in-a-lifetime experience they won’t soon forget!


Mardi Gras World is located on the east bank of the Mississippi river, at 1380 Port of New Orleans Place. We are next door to the cruise terminals and the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
