New Orleans celebrates Mardi Gras with two weeks of parades, balls, parties and more. On Feb. 20, Cocoa Village Mardi Gras will be throwing a celebration of their own and taking over the streets of Downtown Cocoa Village with a parade, pub crawl and more.
Every year the Cocoa Village Mardi Gras brings the spirit of New Orleans straight to the heart of Historic Cocoa Village. Thirty floats, dazzled in decorations, parade through the streets of Cocoa Village and toss out more beads than masqueraded party-goers can carry.

The entertainment lineup for this year’s Cocoa Village Mardi Gras includes live music by the Grammy award-winning band Blues Traveler and an Austin rooted rhythm and soul group Roxy Roca.
