6586 Picasso Rd, Isla Vista, California 93117


St. Michael's University Church

Celebrate abundance in our community garden, church, and throughout Isla Vista with a taste of New Orleans flare.

Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, is traditionally the last day before the Christian season of fasting called Lent. However, folks of all faiths and philosophies have come to celebrate Mardi Gras and Carnival throughout the period between Christmas and Lent as a time for joy and pleasure for its own sake.

We will have our own Mardi Gras feast complete with fresh fruits and vegetables from local farms and gardens including our own Café Picasso Community Garden. We will also have traditional foods like pancakes and king cake, a special dessert that comes with a surprise inside for a lucky few. The St. Mike’s Band will play live music, including some New Orleans brass band classics to set the vibe.

Come have your fill of fun, food, and friends!
