Mardi Gras Events Orange County

Let the ambiance take you to NOLA with fairy lights and New Orleans-style streetlamps. Groove to the music with spectacular performances from Alligator Beach, New Orleans Traditional Jazz Band, and Av Hamilton, including a second line parade right on our Plaza! And in true Mardi Gras fashion, there’s more–fortune teller Sansa Asylum will share your future while she gazes into her crystal ball and tarot cards.

Enjoy mask-making and photo opportunities while a range of musical styles serenade you. George’s Café on the Plaza has created a special Hurricane cocktail for purchase. In addition, The Santa Ana Black Historical Society will be at the event to share their mission to collect, preserve and present art, artifacts and recorded materials that reflect the history and culture of African Americans in Santa Ana and Orange County.

To start the evening, Av Hamilton will share his soulful sound. New Orleans Jazz Band will follow suit on the Argyros Stage and lead a second line parade through the crowd! To close the evening, Hermosa Beach locals Alligator Beach will stir in some New Orleans-flavored funk! Their live show delivers serious heat, with a full horn section and lead singer Carol Hatchett belting NOLA-flavored arrangements of classic pop standards, sprinkled in with their own original material. Mardi Gras on the Plaza will be a night you must not miss!
