Some of the Tucson Foodie team will be at The Delta’s event, which begins at 4 p.m., and The Parish’s party kicks off a little earlier at 1 p.m.

This year, both The Delta and The Parish will be featuring some of their all-time favorites like a crawfish boil (sold by the pound), a full alligator roast (sold by the quarter-pound), Cajun sampler plates, King Cake, face painters, and a handful of the best live music in town.

The full food menu and music schedule will be announced closer to the day of the events.

If you’re in the market to make your Mardi Gras Festival extra special (and permanent), there’s going to be pop-up tattoo shops by local tattoo artists Patience and Joey. They’ll have sheets of flash art you can pick from during the events.

Important ticket info

The Mardi Gras Festival at both restaurants is $15 per person and can be purchased at the door. All food and beverages are sold separately but each ticket comes with complimentary beads and a mini Hurricane or Abita draft beer.

Both parties are 21-and-over events but kids can come along with parental supervision, and anyone 12 years old and younger can get in for free (with parents, of course). All of the younger Fat Tuesday goers can stick around no later than 9 p.m.

Also, this event is festival style — first come, first served and there’s going to be open seating.

VIP Experience at The Delta

Come say hi to the Tucson Foodie team at The Delta, located at 135 S. Sixth Ave., because we’ll be running a small VIP entrance that’s limited to 50 people and an extra $5.

Beaux Dingus is going to be at The Delta, too, offering Crawfish Peeling Demos, walking around the room with Mardi Gras trivia questions, and hosting the event.

VIP Experience perks:
  • Skip the general line — get in faster
  • Photo opportunities with Shane Reiser (CEO of Tucson Foodie) and Beaux Dingus
  • Deluxe beads to wear around your neck or for tossin’ around

The Parish is located at 6543  N. Oracle Rd. and The Delta is located at 135 S. Sixth Ave. For more information, visit theparishtucson.com and thedeltatucson.com
