Mardi Gras and Music Festival in Panama City Beach
Mardi Gras only comes around once a year, and there is no better place to celebrate than Panama City Beach! With our sugar-white sands, emerald green water, and our spectacular views, kicking it “Big Easy” style has never felt more festive or beautiful!
Panama City Beach Mardi Gras and Music Festival takes place on February 21-22, 2020. In conjunction with the Krewe of Dominique Youx’s great Mardi Gras at the Beach parade, the festival is always held the weekend before Fat Tuesday and features entertainment for the whole family. The festival takes place in and around Pier Park and Aaron Besant Park, which is only a few minutes down the road from the famously family-friendly Holiday Inn Resort.
