Mardi Gras Music Festival
Casselberry's Mardi Gras Music Festival is Going to the Dogs!
Headlining this year's festivities on Saturday, February 18, 2023 from 6-9 p.m. at Lake Concord Park will be the Porchdogs, who have been playing spicy Louisiana Cajun and zydeco and New Orleans R&B classics since 1992. Their sound is driven by the expert squeezebox playing of Greg Taillon and the solid guitar and harmonica of Andy Burr. The band has had numerous extended performances at Disney World, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens and many fairs and festivals, including nine years of daily performances at the Florida State Fair. The group is also the only act that has performed 15 years at the Fort Lauderdale Cajun and Zydeco Festival, which was the largest festival of its kind outside of Louisiana. Opening the show will be local favorite, 60 Street Band. Besides music, there will be food trucks and product vendors. This event is FREE so bring your blankets, chairs, and friends and be a part of this year's exciting Mardi Gras Music Festival! Parking is available near Lake Concord Park and adjacent businesses. ADA parking is available in front of Casselberry's Police Department located off 17-92.
