Carnegie Carnival

Carnegie Carnival

Feb 22nd 2020

In 2012, the Carnegie Visual Arts Center presented the area’s first Mardi Gras-style celebration with the “Carnegie Carnival.” Charter members created a season that spans from Carnival Petition in October to Twelfth Night in January to Gospel Brunch in February and culminates with the Carnegie Carnival parades always held on the Saturday before Fat Tuesday. This day of celebration has grown and expanded each year and now starts with Decatur’s only half marathon, the Carnival Frolic, and ends with a nighttime parade that can proudly hold its own with Mardi Gras parades that have been held elsewhere for centuries.
