The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator!

The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator is back again for another round! It is a party weekend for Mardi Gras with plenty of reggae shows including Collie Buddz, Groundation, Iration, Stick Figure, RX Bandits, and The Wailers.

As the expression goes, Laissez les bons temps rouler!…or Let the good times roll! Florida will be doing just that this weekend at The Cocoa Village Mardi Gras and Shrimp Boil in Cocoa Beach. The annual event is a true New Orleans style celebration that has taken place in the streets of downtown Cocoa Village for the past 22 years. Attendees are urged to dress in Mardi Gras themed attire and come ready for a fun-filled day of reggae, jazz, blues, and zydeco style entertainment.

This year’s carnival has plenty of entertainment and authentic Cajun food to enjoy tomorrow night. There will be 6 bands performing on 3 stages, food and merchandise vendors, and the Annual Parade of Floats. Pepper headlines the event taking the main stage at 9pm with Hor!zen and Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers playing earlier in the evening. Coastal Breed, UNRD, and Moska Project can be caught throughout the night on the side stage while DJs will be spinning on the gazebo stage.

Concert-goers will get an hour break from the music for the city-wide Mardi Gras parade without having to worry about missing any of the great performers. The Annual Parade of Floats allows spectators to catch hundreds of beads thrown from over 30 floats marching through the streets of downtown Cocoa Village. But don’t forget to hit up Fishlips Waterfront Bar and Grill starting at 5pm for the Louisiana Shrimp Boil.

Those looking for something extra can get the VIP experience. The higher ticket price for VIP is worth-while as it comes with VIP entry, private VIP bathrooms, free catered food, and a private open bar. And if that’s not enough, everyone is invited to keep the party going at nearby Dog N Bone for a free after-party with performances by New Kingston and Through The Roots.

Remember to come by here every single Friday to see what shows are going on for the entire weekend. You may also view our built-in Show Locator, where you can search by artist & view all of their upcoming shows, with options to purchase tickets for select shows!
