NEW ORLEANS — Carnival season kicks off on January 6 with a rolling party on the city's historic streetcar line and an annual procession honoring Joan of Arc in the French Quarter.

Parade routes have not been finalized but the Mayor's Mardi Gras Advisory Council said to expect shortened parade routes for Carnival 2023, similar to the routes used in 2022 during a mid-October meeting.

Here are the dates and times for your favorite parades. Event dates are subject to change or cancellation.
