Madear's Manchester



 August 20th, 2019


Celebrating the thrill of Mardi Gras once a year just isn’t enough! A mid-summer celebration of Caju music and food reminds us of the Joie-de-Vivre for which Louisiana is renowned.

The term “Mardi Gras” conjures up images of lively jazz music, colorful beads, and copious amounts of food…

…and, if you live in New England, snow, ice, and subzero temperatures. Unlike the warm and sunny New Orleans, Manchester isn’t the best place to celebrate Mardi Gras. At the Franco-American Centre, we think that it’s a shame that the spicy Cajun culture is delegated only to that frigid day in February. That’s why we created Halfway to Mardi Gras – a celebration of everything Cajun without the cold!

Location : Madear’s Manchester

Cost:  Non-members    $32         Members $28

Participants will feel like they are in the heart of Cajun country as they sample traditional Louisiana fare.

Don’t miss out on this chance to add a little extra “joie de vivre” – in the summer where it belongs!
