Northland Mardi Gras - Ladysmith

July 18 - July 21

Ladysmith Mardi Gras

The Annual Ladysmith celebration - the Northland Mardi Gras, features days full of fun and excitement! This community celebration is fun for all ages. Midway rides, carnival games, water shows, live music, and bingo are only a few of the activities found here.

An arts and crafts show takes place on Saturday from 9am-2pm on Miner Avenue, and just a short stroll down the street you can find the water fights. ChalkFest creations can be found throughout downtown. Sporting tournaments, such as basketball, volleyball, and golf, will be a great way to enjoy the July sun! Fireworks will fill the sky on Friday and Saturday nights as a Venetian Night Parade floats by on the Flambeau River. The Mardi Gras will conclude with a street parade on Sunday. Mark your calendar because you won't want to miss out!
