Mardi_Gras_Poster_FINAL_PRINT-01The Clarendon-Courthouse Mardi Gras Parade will be held on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, at 8pm, on Wilson Blvd from N. Barton to N. Danville Streets in Clarendon.

Approximately 90% of the original Mardi Gras entries are able to participate on the rescheduled date, according to the CA.

The CA is also announcing that the Mardi Gras Parade registration period is being extended, to allow additional entrants to participate in the parade.  New registrations will be accepted by the CA through 5pm on Wednesday March 12.

The Clarendon-Courthouse Mardi Gras Parade has been an Arlington tradition for many years, and it’s quirky mix of participants makes the annual event the largest Mardi Gras parade in the DC region.

Originally scheduled for March 4, the parade was postponed due to significant snow and cold temps, which made the parade route unsafe for spectators and parade participants.  For more information, or to register to participate in the parade, please visit
