Fairport Mardi Gras is a festival which takes place on the beach at Fairport Harbor Lake Front Metropark every year around the 4th of July weekend. There are rides, games, food, and fireworks.
The Fairport Mardi Gras is ran by a group of volunteers who grew up and still live in the village, and/or someone who lived in the village and have since moved on, but still hold Fairport near to their hearts. The committee is made up of dedicated volunteers that meet on the 2nd Monday of each month held at the Fairport Harbor Village Hall, 220 Third Street, 2nd Floor with board members meeting at 6:30 pm and regular members meeting at 7:00 pm. (Dates and times may change without notice.)
Fairport Mardi Gras is proud of its long lasting relationship with the Fairport Harbor community and Fairport Harbor Exempted Schools. With participation in the parade, monetary donations have been made to area high school bands to support their programs. Scholarships are awarded to current FHS high school graduates. Recent donations have been made to the Lighthouse Community Theatre and to St. Anthony's food bank.
Our mission, as the Fairport Mardi Gras, is to raise money to be able to give back and help out the community.
So please come down, grab a bite to eat, enjoy the rides, enjoy the entertainment and have a fun time!
We look forward to seeing you, have a fun and safe summer!
