Mardi Gras is a festival held in some countries on Shrove Tuesday but most famously in New Orleans. Many cities in the South hold Mardi Gras parades and events that don't even come close to the way New Orlean's do things, but still incredible fun! Mardi Gras is time for stuffing your face full of amazing cajun and creole food, drinking yourself silly and collecting strings of little plastic beads as if they're going to be the new currency when the New World Order strikes.
Surprisingly, Mardi Gras offers some great opportunities to make extra money while you're having fun. Whether your town is a raging Mardi Gras hotspot or a just casual observer of the holiday, here are nine ways you can make mad cash during Fat Tuesday.

▲Bake Mardi Gras Treats
Two words: KING CAKE. Mardi Gras is THE time for king cake and bakeries are going to be going bananas trying to keep up with the orders. Mardi Gras themed cupcakes, cookies and other sweets are going to be in high demand as well. If you're a competent baker, take orders or sell ready-made items right from your home.


▲Social Media Management
Many businesses like bakeries, caterers and party supply shops are going to be so busy getting ready for the big day, they won't even have time to promote their special deals and events the way they need to. That's where you come in. If you're well experienced with managing your own social media accounts then start your own social media management service. Hey I've got one of those! Come check out my site HERE for a few ideas.


▲Catering
There will be private Mardi Gras parties everywhere and caterers are going to be maxed out. Now I don't mean trying to feed 500 people at a masquerade ball or anything like that, I mean cooking cajun staples for small office parties, family functions and even small weddings. Recruit a friend or family member to help you create large quantities of Mardi Gras favorites like jambalaya, red beans and rice and of course, gumbo.  Set up shouldn't cost you much if you charge a deposit so you can buy your food and other supplies ahead of time. And dig it, you can find all kinds of beautiful disposable serving dishes and utensils at the Dollar Tree.

▲Be a Designated Driver with Lyft or Uber
Hurricanes, jello shots and beer will be everyone's drink of choice come Mardi Gras - aaaaall day long. There are going to be A LOT of people in need of a ride. A. LOT. Sign up to become an Uber or Lyft driver ASAP and do your part to help keep the roads safe.


▲Get Crafty
Make Mardi Gras crafts for indoor and outdoor decor, custom embroider shirts and hats for Krewes and even make jewelry. Sell your wares at local craft shows, your own yard sale, on Facebook, eBay, Craigslist and Etsy.


▲Entertain at Mardi Gras Events or Busk
Use your talents and hire yourself out for events of all kinds like private parties, balls and bar clowns, magicians, balloon sculptors, stilt-walkers, fire spinners and jugglers are all wanted! Can't get a gig? Take it to the streets! Set up on a street corner or public park during Mardi Gras and busk (perform for tips).

▲Make Costumes
In the South, there's as much demand for costumes during Mardi Gras than there is on Halloween! Premake costumes and sell them online and/or take custom orders via Facebook and Craigslist. Court gowns and formals for balls are also needed as well! If you're not much of a seamstress, decorated parasols, hats and other hair accessories are always wanted. All you need is a hot glue gun!



▲Be a Mardi Gras Event Vendor
Invest some money in buying wholesale high-demand Mardi Gras items like crazy hats, inflatables, light-up toys, masks tee shirts, tote bags and novelty beads. Apply for a booth space at your local Mardi Gras festival and sell your wares for competitive prices.


▲Aftermath Cleaning Service
Mardi Gras aftermath can get pretty ugly especially on the streets and in bars.  The City mostly likely has their own workers and volunteers that clean up public spaces, but we can't say the same for private businesses. Round up a small crew and offer to clean up bars, lounges and other celebration hot spots. Plan this well before Mardi Gras so you'll have plenty of time to spread the word of your service.
