Pensacola Mardi Gras and Palafox Market will collaborate for a special holiday event to commemorate the beginning of the 2020 Mardi Gras season. On Saturday, Jan. 4, the award-winning Palafox Market will transform into Mardi Gras Market, fully equipped with purple, green and gold celebration necessities. All 90 krewes and festive observers are invited to shop for Mardi Gras goods before the traditional “Blessing of the Floats” ceremony.
Mardi Gras Market will be located on Palafox Street, stretching from Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza to Garden Street. Vendors at the Mardi Gras Market will show off their celebratory creativity with Mardi Gras themed home decor, baked goods, shirts, jewelry, soaps and more.
In the weeks following Mardi Gras Market, the 2020 Pensacola Mardi Gras festivities will continue with numerous krewe balls and the Grand Mardi Gras Parade on Feb. 22.
