The Mobile Mardi Gras Trail Sponsorships

The Mobile Mardi Gras Trail is a non-profit initiative, is a project of the Historic Mobile Preservation Society, created to increase community engagement in Mobile's history and the arts.

The Historic Mobile Preservation Society placed its first historic markers in the city in the 1930s, which can be seen today on the corner of Royal and Theater Streets and in front of the Conde-Charlotte House. HMPS has placed many markers at historic sites in Mobile over the past eighty years and is now proposing its most significant contribution to the recognition of Mobile’s historic past, commemorating the location of the first mystic parades, which brought national acclaim to the city for their grandeur and artistry,and inspired the American Mardi Gras  tradition. 
The Mardi Gras Trail a series of historic markers which tell the real story of the first 100 years of mystic parades in Mobile and provide a clear visual map of Mobile's social and cultural development, supported by online resources and documentation.

Altogether, the sites of the Trail reveal the connection between Mobile's Mardi Gras and the city’s rich history as a busy urban port and a center of culture in the Deep South.

Guided tours of the Mardi Gras Trail are now available daily, the only guided walking tours in the city. Click here to Register
The installation of bricks and historic markers, educational programs provided for the public, as well as materials for students in the classroom are all funded entirely through corporate and private sponsorships.
The Historic Mobile Preservation Society is a non-profit 501C3 organization. Its main support comes from private, corporate and individual sponsors. With this support, the HMPS creates programs like the Mobile Mardi Gras Trail, designed to increase awareness of the city’s unique and irreplaceable history, inspire unity and engage the Mobile community in an appreciation of our common heritage.

 We also view corporate/non-profit partnerships as essential to community progress and welcome ideas and opportunities to work with you in any capacity.
