About us

Loxton celebrates its 63rd Mardi Gras on Friday 28th February, 

Saturday 29th February and

Sunday 1st March, 2020.

This year's theme is 'PLAY'


The Mardi Gras is a family fun day, with money raised going towards community projects.


Most years the event raises thousands of dollars through the efforts of many volunteers.
