Celebrate Fat Tuesday! February 17, 2015

Gear up for Buffalo’s biggest winter event, the 20th Annual Artvoice Mardi Gras Festival. At 6pm on Fat Tuesday, Feb. 17th, Allentown will become a Mardi Gras carnival of live music, cajun food, beads and colorful people. 13 participating clubs and restaurants along Allen St. will be celebrating what New Orleans calls the World’s Biggest Party.

Live performances start at 6pm by The Albrights, Steam Donkeys, The Stripteasers, Lee Ron Zydeco and the Hot Tamales and many more. You won’t want to miss the complimentary Cajun Buffet and giveaways at DBGBs or the outrageous drag queen show at Nietzsche’s starring the fabulous host of Mardi Gras miss Chevon Davis and her crew, Malibu Breeze, Melody Michaels, Veronica Lace, Atasha Salad and Mary Luchey.

DJs spinning up the party at Mardi Gras venues include DJ Spooky, the Meltdown Crew Milk & Cochise, Charlie the Butcher, DJ Scott and more. You’ll also want catch music by Artvoice Best Original Music winner Type Relevant at Fat Bob’s.

This is a night to get crazy so dress yourself to express yourself. There will be Mardi Gras beads at every venue so collect as many as you can. A $5 Mardi Gras wristband gets you in all 13 venues. The party starts at 6pm Tuesday, February 17th. Sponsored by Artvoice and Magic Hat. A fundraiser for the Lifeline Foundation at ECMC.
