Metropole Mardi Gras

Transport yourself to the streets of New Orleans and take part in our Lansdowne based rendition of an authentic stateside jazz festival – the Metropole Mardi Gras!

We’ll have jamming Jazz bands and stirring entertainment to encourage festivals goers to get up and dance. Plus join our Mardi Gras parade in your swankiest get-up, with beads, necklaces, feathers and masks, as our hot acts get Lansdowne jumping!

With two chances to catch our Mardi Gras procession – 12pm and 2.30pm – we’d love you to join us. There’ll also be food to reflect famous Louisiana cuisine, in addition to our regular foodie offering.

Join us as we celebrate the birthplace of Jazz during our towns’ acclaimed Jazz By The Sea Festival.
