Let the Mardi Pardi Begin During the One-and-Only Zulu Lundi Gras Festival

Get ready to kick off the Mardi Gras season by attending the Zulu Lundi Gras Festival! The Zulu Lundi Gras Festival is a fun-filled day allowing the people of New Orleans and our city visitors an up-close look at the Zulu Characters. We welcome you to a fun and exciting day of food, music, arts, and crafts along the beautiful riverfront of New Orleans.

The Zulu's Lundi Gras Festival began in 1993 from an idea by George Rainey of Zulu and Ms. Karen Noles of the Audubon Nature Institute. The purpose of this activity was to have an event along the riverfront the Monday before Mardi Gras Day involving Zulu Float Characters and culminating with the arrival of King and Queen Zulu.

The festival allows citizens and visitors a close look at the Characters of Zulu. Some of New Orleans's finest Restaurants and Caterers provide food to satisfy the appetites of festival goers and the music is provided by New Orleans own talented and well-known musicians, as well as Zulu memorabilia and other arts and crafts are displayed in the African Village.

With three stages, the line-up is star studded each year, it continues until the arrival of the Zulu King and Queen aboard a Coast Guard Ship. The Zulu Lundi Gras Festival, a traditional day of merriment the day before Mardi Gras, truly keeps with the saying “The Greatest Free Show On Earth!” The festival is free and open to the public.

At Brookstone Park Apartments in Covington, Louisiana, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
