The Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival is a festival and celebration, and dancing and music play an enormous part of the event, with daily shows held at various locations throughout the town. The grand finale of the Pink Loerie Mardi Gras, the Parade and after-party, is held on the final weekend of the celebrations. The festival boasts floats, performers, and DJ’s from all over the world and local businesses also get into to the spirit, competing for the best Pink Loerie window display.

A notable accomplishment of Pink Loerie is the charity drive for local charities such as Loeriehof Old Age Home in Graham Street, Vermont Retirement Village, Knysna Animal Welfare, and the Mayor’s Relief Fund. The Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival is a time of celebration with a purpose.
