The Camp is bringing Mardi Gras to Huntsville’s MidCity District

HUNTSVILLE – Mardi Gras is full swing right now, but you do not have to book a trip to New Orleans to enjoy it. “Mardi Gras at MidCity” is a three-week celebration at MidCity District’s The Camp. The event draws thousands of people to the grounds to partake in authentic food and music, many of which are native to New Orleans.

“Music and culture have a way to deeply connect a community and inspire the soul,” said RCP Co-Founder Max Grelier. “What we are doing at MidCity District is less about building a physical place and more about building an authentic community mindset. It’s known that music and culture matter, but when it comes from the right place in the right way it can be a powerful force for good and allow us to celebrate our humanity together with this Mardi Gras celebration.”

RCP Companies hand-picked musicians that would add to the authenticity of the event and bring New Orleans culture to MidCity District. The three-week Mardi Gras celebration will include musical performances and entertainment by several groups and organizations, including:

  • Blackwater Brass Band
  • Brass-a-holics
  • Young Fellaz
  • Soul Brass Band
  • Huntsville Drumline
  • The Cotton Candies
  • Funk You
  • Admiral Phunk
  • Majesty Divines Mardi Gras Drag Brunch

In addition to musicians traveling from New Orleans, authentic Mardi Gras food is intentionally curated. King cakes from renowned bakery, Manny Randazzo King Cakes, will make their way to Huntsville.

‘Mardi Gras at MidCity’ festivities began on Friday, Feb. 3 and conclude on Fat Tuesday, Feb 21, with a musical performance by New Orleans funk band, Flow Tribe. VIP pergolas and igloos will be made available for rent and the final weekend will also include a crawfish boil, the MidCity Paw Parade, a brass brunch with the Soul Brass Band and appearances by authentic Mardi Gras Indians from New Orleans.
