The 5th Annual Mardi Gras on Main Street is coming back to La Porte!  Make plans to join us on Saturday, February 16 for live music , the best craft beer garden in the area, crawfish, food trucks, free kid's entertainment, Mardi Gras market, and much more!

Plus another MARCH TO MARDI GRAS...  This will be the biggest Second Line La Porte has ever seen.  Get out your glue guns and feathers and let’s see what team has the best umbrellas.

Planning on participating in the fun and not looking to drive home after? Excellent! Make sure you check out all of our hotels available here in La Porte. 

Stay tuned for more details and join us on Facebook for updates! 


We have a night of blazing hot live music planned! Kicking off the festivities will be the unmatched creativity and sound of the Bayou City Brass Band. Known as “The Baddest Band on the Planet,” they have recently performed for The Houston Rockets live at the Toyota Center. The Bayou City Brass Band combines the influences of jazz, r&b and hip-hop music into one unique sound. The Bayou City Brass Band in many ways mirrors the tradition established over 100 years ago by New Orleans’ Olympia Brass Band.

The very best zydeco band in Houston, Keyun and the Zydeco Masters, will be taking the main stage at 7pm to crank up the party at the 5th Annual Mardi Gras on Main in La Porte, TX. You don’t want to miss the sound that’s being played all over Houston!
