Mardi Gras, also Fat Tuesday, refers to events of the Carnival celebrations, beginning on or after the Epiphany or King’s Day and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday”, reflecting the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season.

In 2011 Kayree Entertainment brings the history of Mardi Gras to ATLANTA! It started as a social gathering for natives of Mobile who moved to Atlanta. This event quickly expanded to include natives of New Orleans now living in Atlanta. The playful rivalry of the origins of Mardi Gras crosses state lines as natives of Mobile and New Orleans now living in Atlanta debate the birthplace of Mardi Gras.

Now, over 1,000 Mardi Gras revelers gather in Atlanta to celebrate a 300 year tradition and continue the rivalry.


This year, The Atlanta Mardi Gras Ball is working tandem with The L.E.A.D. Foundation. This great non-profit organization’s mission is focused on “developing tomorrow’s leaders today” through leadership development opportunities that extend classroom learning, and they offer a variety of programs and services to underprivileged middle and high schools students to prepare them for leadership in their education, careers, and communities. One of their main programs is the Lead Spring Break College Tour, where they take students on a tour during spring break to visit colleges and be exposed to the possibilities of attending an institution of higher learning. Your sponsorship of the Atlanta Mardi Gras will help to send a student on this tour this year, as a portion of proceeds from this year’s ball will go to support this worthwhile cause.
