SARATOGA SPRINGS —The annual Hattie’s Mardi Gras event will take place Saturday, Jan. 28 from 6-10 p.m. as the Canfield Casino will once again be transformed into the “New Orleans of the North.”

Savor your experience with the culinary expertise of Hattie’s Restaurant Chef Jasper Alexander, Chef Phil Fitzpatrick, and Chef Mark D. Graham. Dance the night away to the sounds of Soul Session and Garland Nelson and bid to win during the silent auction. Acclaimed CNN journalist Alisyn Camerota will be Emcee for the evening. Relaunching this event is a community effort; we encourage you to get involved.

The 2023 Hattie’s Mardi Gras beneficiary is the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York. The Food Bank works to alleviate hunger and eliminate waste by collecting large quantities of food and distributing it to 350,000 of our Capital Region neighbors in need, every month. 

The inaugural Hattie’s Mardi Gras began in 2001 and has donated over one million dollars to non-profits in our community. In 2021 Hattie’s Restaurant joined the Business for Good (BFG) family of companies and donates all profits to charity. BFG co-founders Ed and Lisa Mitzen will be hosting the upcoming event.
