Dogtown Dance Theatre brings New Orleans style to Richmond for the 7th year with our annual Mardi Gras RVA celebration! Join us on Saturday February 10th for the BIGGEST family-friendly Mardi Gras event!

Dogtown kicks off the day of fun and activities with our 5 block parade in Manchester! Everyone is welcome to join in on the parade. Dogtown performers and the entire community are invited to dress up, have fun, and dance in the streets. The parade kicks off at 3PM and is a great way to get jazzed up for the main event inside the theatre.

After the parade, the party moves inside at 4PM with live music, activities for adults and kids, FREE New Orleans King Cake, Mardi Gras beads galore, and performances from your favorite Dogtown artists.

Sophia’s International Cuisine will be serving up some of the best Cajun-style food in the area, and we are grateful to our Manchester neighbor, Legend Brewing Company, for being our adult beverage sponsor for the event!

RVA musician Maroon Corey Group will get the whole building dancing in between performance sets with a New Orleans-inspired jazz quartet. There is a kids’ activity room with Mardi Gras mask-making and face-painting, and henna artist Donna Bailey with Henna Creations will be in house so you can decorate yourself!

Dogtown Performers include:
RVA Dance Collective
Pole Pressure RVA
Latin Vintage
Circular Expressions Hoop Troupe
Dogwood Dance Project
Studio 4 Dance Company
Ajna Tribal Bellydance Troupe
