On March 4, 2014, Snowmass celebrates 32 years of Fat Tuesday revelry with the biggest Mardi Gras bash in the mountains. From a mid afternoon madcap parade to a free concert, this authentic fete offers Cajun fun for all ages. The event is produced in association with Jazz Aspen Snowmass.
The main event of the celebration is undoubtedly a performance by The Pimps of Joytime, a funky Brooklyn-based band. Their diverse sound and spirited attitude is strongly influenced by the Brooklyn DJ culture and live music scene from which they emerge. Preview their music
before the show!

- 7 a.m. Mother of All Ascensions Race at Snowmass mountain
- 3 p.m. Bead Toss
