Two events celebrating Mardi gras in Manitou Springs
Weekend of Mardi Gras Fun
Returning in 2023 is the Manitou Springs Carnivale Weekend! Join us for the Mumbo Gumbo Jumbo Cook-Off and the Carnivale Parade. Local shops and restaurants will also be offering some sweet deals and food specials (to hopefully include some warm, tasty gumbo!).
Dress up, dress down, and don’t forget to don your feathered masks while you enjoy all that Manitou Springs has to offer.
2022 Carnivale events!
Carnivale Parking & Parade Detour
Parking will be available for a fee at Hiawatha Gardens, or for free at Briarhurst Manor with no shuttles at either location.
Manitou Springs High School (401 El Monte Place) and Middle School will be offering free parking, with free shuttles running from 11am-3pm. The free shuttles are provided by Grayline and Local Motive.
Pike Ride will have a station setup at Soda Springs Park, so you can ride directly to the main event festivities! You can use code “CARNIVALE” on 2/18, which will get you two free 30 minute trips, to enjoy Carnivale in Manitou Springs.
