MARDI GRAS DATES: We include this information both because Bienville Books carries a number of Mardi Gras related books and because we are located within the parading areas, occasionally limiting access to our store. Mardi Gras is associated with Easter Sunday, so its dates change from year to year. Here are the dates for Fat Tuesday for 2012 - 2019.
