Annual Mardi Gras celebration features live Creole music




  If you can’t make it to New Orleans to take in Mardi Gras, the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library will bring it to you on Sunday, February 23rd.  A family-friendly celebration featuring live music will take place in the Browning Events Room at Central Library beginning at 2:00 pm.


Special musical guests Dennis Stroughmatt et l’Esprit Créole will treat you to a vibrant performance of French Creole and Cajun music from “Old Upper Louisiana,” a region which encompasses Evansville.  Discover unknown facts about the stories behind the music.  Of course, a Mardi Gras celebration wouldn’t be complete without king cake, beads, and masks also.


There is no charge to attend this event, which is made possible by The Mesker Music Trust, Fifth Third Bank, Trustee.
