Northland Mardi Gras - Ladysmith

July 16 @ 9:00 am - July 18 @ 11:00 pm

Ladysmith Mardi Gras

Check back for more updates on our 2021 event!

Although some things have been altered for the Mardi Gras this year, sporting tournaments, live music, and food vendors are a few of the events that will still take place. This year, the Mardi Gras will be held in downtown Ladysmith. Come shop the annual arts & crafts fair on Miner Avenue from 9am-2pm and take a look at the many interesting products the vendors are selling- you won't be disappointed! Not far away is our farmers' market with their fresh produce. The Rusk County Junior Fair will be holding their tractor and truck pulls during this time at the Rusk County Fairgrounds. Live music can be heard all throughout, and stop by the outdoor beer garden for a drink. Alongside all of this, there will be fireworks and a car show for all to see!
