About Mardi Gras in Cambridge

Who says Cambridge doesn’t have its own flavors of the South? Mardi Gras in Cambridge, Massachusetts is a fun, family activity for all! Mardi Gras takes place on the day before Ash Wednesday every year.

This annual holiday celebrates the last day in which many religious observers can eat rich foods before Lent. As a result, this is the best time of year to visit Cambridge restaurants.

By far the best way to celebrate Mardi Gras in Cambridge is at Wolf’s Annual Mardi Gras, located at 10 Brookline St., Cambridge.

Cambridge Music

Come out and enjoy the incredible Cambridge music scene, dance along to local Cambridge rockstars and celebrities, and have a night full of fun.

The best part? All proceeds benefit musicians without health care, so you can feel good about the celebrations, too. To reserve your spot today, call 617-492-0082.

Southern cooking

Another great way to celebrate is to delight in some good ol’ fashioned homestyle cooking.

Make reservations today at Charlie’s Kitchen in Harvard Square and feast on a decadent double cheeseburger. Live it up at Frank’s Steak House.

And if you want my personal recommendation, you can’t go wrong with Mardi Gras at Red Bones, where Southern comfort food is at its finest (and I can’t be wrong, because I’m from the South).

From the bottom of my Mardi Gras-loving heart to yours, happy Mardi Gras, Cambridge!
