Fair-style Family Fun that Supports Local School Fundraising

Searching for a little family fun that all ages can enjoy together? Look no further than the annual St. Clare Mardi Gras Festival. With free admission and parking, as well as discounted pre-sale ride tickets, this is an easy way to get the whole family together for a night of laughs, thrill rides, challenging games and tasty fair treats.


The North Palm Beach-based Catholic school’s signature fundraising event is now in its 26th year and runs this year from January 18 to January 21. Located at 821 Prosperity Farms Road in North Palm Beach, the green open fields of this local school are transformed to a midway of lights, rides and festival fun! This year the school has employed a new carnival company, Doolan Amusements, and promises new exciting rides and experiences.

St. Clare School’s Mardi Gras Festival is an easy way to enjoy fair-style fun without heading to the larger scale South Florida Fair—and supporting local students and their school in the process. In addition, discounted pre-sale tickets are a great way to save yourself a little cash on the family fun. The pre-sale discount provides a savings of 25 percent. Tickets can be purchased online through 12pm on January 18th, or through a family at the school to help support the in-school fundraising contests. The school’s parish office will be open for ticket sales January 16th and 17th from 8am to 2:30pm, and January 18th from 8am to 12pm. Rides, games and food tickets are priced individually. Rides are typically 2 to 6 tickets each, while games and food 4 tickets or more. Tickets are all sold in sheets of 20. Regular priced tickets can also be purchase at the event.
