Mardi Gras Extravaganza [MGE] is the LARGEST indoor Mardi Gras Block Party to ever hit Washington, DC! Coming Tuesday, February 13, 2018 from 6PM-10PM to Union Market’s Dock 5, partygoers can indulge in a Valentine’s Day themed LOVE FEST of continuous revelry and participate in the world-renowned tradition of celebrating Fat Tuesday. MGE will feature Southern-influenced STREET FOOD and COCKTAILS from the area’s top chefs and mixologists. Abita Brewing Company will be pouring all night to the tunes of LIVE MUSIC while Costume Contests and a Hurricane Cocktail Competition unfolds.
