The 2013 George Street Mardi Gras is brought to you by Bud Light, Lamb’s Nation, Rogers, North Atlantic, Red Bull, NTV, OZFM, The Newfoundland Herald, Goodlife Fitness, and Delta St. John’s.

The annual George Street Mardi Gras has historically been a popular event with the citizens of St. John’s, Newfoundland. Evoking the same fun spirit as the infamous New Orleans Mardi Gras, George Street’s event happens yearly around Halloween, transforming the entire street into the largest costume party in the country.

Live entertainment is, of course, one of the main components of the George Street Mardi Gras. Recent acts have included Big Sugar, Honeymoon Suite, The Shining Wizards, Scientists of Sound and more, as well as favourite local acts and popular tribute bands. Ticket price includes entry to all 25 bars on George Street.

A major highlight of each Mardi Gras is the Bud Light Costume Boonanza. The best costumes of the night are judged onstage and the winners can walk away with big prizes. Last year’s Bud Light Costume Boonanza included $10,000 in prize money ($5000 for 1st place). Entry details are posted prior to the event and all Mardi Gras attendees are invited to enter (must be 19+).
