Samedi Gras Great Big Fat Saturday Bash @ Old Murphy School
Feb 10 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Durham Mardi Gras is kicking off your Samedi Gras Saturday night New Orleans style with the frenetic, hyperkinetic and wildly popular Ellis Dyson and the Shambles, plus Durham’s most beloved second line band, the Bulltown Strutters. Put on your dancing shoes!

As if that weren’t enough, we’re going to follow the old New Orleans tradition and give away a bowl of free red beans and rice to the first 100 people in the door. You can wash it down with the finest beer in the Triangle, on tap from Hillsborough’s Mystery Brewing Company.

All proceeds benefit Durham Mardi Gras to help provide a free and open Fat Tuesday for all of Durham. See you there!
