Additional Information

Join Bayou Vermilion District’s Vermilionville on Sunday, February 16th at 10 a.m. as they bring a traditional country Mardi Gras run to the city for their annual Courir de Mardi Gras with the Basile Mardi Gras Association. “This is our heritage, culture and tradition. This is us. This is how we’ve always done it – to go out and beg, sing, dance and hopefully get everything we need for a gumbo,” explains Russell “Potic” Rider – President of the Basile Mardi Gras Association.

The morning will begin at 10 a.m. with children’s capuchon-making workshops which will go throughout the day. Attendees are also encouraged to arrive at 10:00 a.m. for the Courir, which begins at 11 a.m. with an overview of the Mardi Gras tradition. From there guests will stop at six of the homes located inside Vermilionville’s historic village where they will watch the Basile Mardi Gras Association beg for all the ingredients for the community gumbo and perform some traditions along the way.

Admission for the Courir de Mardi Gras is $5 for all ages except children under 5 who get in free. For more information visit the calendar of events at Vermilionville.org, or call (337) 233-4077.
