CarniVail is Vail's ultimate Mardi Gras celebration. This family-friendly festival involves concerts, food events, parties and live entertainment held at multiple venues throughout Vail and on Vail Mountain. Enjoy CarniVail whether you're skiing or hanging out in town, as events range from an on-mountain crawfish boil to après-ski parties held in both Vail Village and Lionshead Village. In true Mardi Gras style, costumes are encouraged, so come on out to celebrate with a big appetite for New Orleans–style food and fun. CarniVail happens annually in February within a few days of the actual Mardi Gras holiday.
