Loda Art Walk 2nd Friday
of every month
LoDa ArtWalk is a free monthly event that showcases our visual, performing, and culinary arts community. This event takes place on the second Friday of every month from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Lower Dauphin (LoDa) Arts District. LoDa ArtWalk is made possible through a partnership between the Events Division of the Mobile Parks & Recreations Department, the Mobile Arts Council, and other downtown partners.
During ArtWalk, Dauphin Street is shut down for pedestrian foot traffic, and local art galleries, institutions, studios, and unique shops stay open extended hours for the public to explore. This family-friendly event is a staple of Mobile's arts community, bringing thousands Downtown to visit venues, eat at restaurants, and shop with the local outdoor vendors.

Mobile “The Birthplace” of Mardi Gras Every Spring
That's right, Mardi Gras originated in 1703 right here in our port city. It was revived after the Civil War when citizen Joe Cain, fed up with post-war misery, led an impromptu parade down city streets. We've been doing it ever since and we mark the annual occasion with majestic parades, colorful floats and flying Moon Pies. Elaborate themed floats manned by masked mystic societies, mounted police and marching bands wind through downtown Mobile and surrounding areas, entertaining nearly a million revelers each year. Our Carnival is a family-friendly time of parties, balls, parades and revelry.
Find your spot and get ready to catch Moon Pies, beads and trinkets.
