THE MERRY ANTOINETTES

As a creative collaborative of scandalous party queens, we embrace the extravagance of the French 18th century and bring it to life all year round, by participating in events throughout the city of New Orleans. Mardi Gras is our primary playground doused in Champagne, but beware…We love to throw cake!

KREWE OF DYSTOPIAN PARADISE

We, the Krewe of Dystopian Paradise (KDP), in order to honor our perfectly imperfect union, hereby pledge to celebrate our city and each other, until we fall into the swamp, sink into the sea, succumb to the zombie apocalypse, or die of extremely boring natural causes. We exist to unite parade and audience, neutral ground and sidewalk side, tourist and local, transplant and yat, in the fun, immersive, wild, beautiful worlds we create.

BAYOU BABES

The Bayou Babes of New Orleans is an inclusive marching krewe that celebrates the wonders of South Louisiana bayous and culture. We create our costumes and throws with a diy spirit. We dress as anything found in the Bayou and march / dance to zydeco music. The krewe was founded as an affordable and accessible way to participate in the joy of a Mardi Gras parade.

KREWE OF KING JAMES

THE SUPER BAD SEX MACHINE STROLLERS

Don't take no mess for Mardi Gras. Get on up and get on the good foot, in honor of King James Brown, Soul Brother #1. Our mission: Get Up Offa That Thing!

LES REBELLES

Always wanted to be a Flapper or a 60s Gogo dancer? Les ReBelles are that and more. Through dance, we celebrate the historic fight for women’s rights by visiting the different eras when significant progress was made towards “La Liberation de la Femme”. Think 1920’s flapper, 1960’s go-go, turn of the century French Cancan, etc… All that, with a French twist!

KREWE D'ENSITE

TThe only krewe dedicated to affordabilité, walkabilité, and vibrancé. Through our protests we remind New Orleans that violence baguettes violence.

KREWE d'ESPRIT

Krewe D'Esprit was founded in 2019 as a Social Aid & Pleasure Club committed to embodying and embracing the spirit, whether it's a fine tipple, a good ghost story, a raucous night out, or the ineffable vibe of New Orleans itself.  We believe in creating an atmosphere of mutual support and respect, devoted to uplifting and celebrating the best in our members and community.  We eschew drama in favor of dramatic flair, ownership in favor of an outrageously good time.  Our krewe is open to all like-minded souls, regardless of identity or physical location, who seek the best in others and themselves. Sure we have excellent parties, convivial conversation, and amazing costumes, but we're also known for our proven willingness to show up and work hard/play hard in support of both Krewe D'Esprit and any organization with which we align.  Not just a pretty face and a fun time, we are social justice oriented, committed to giving back to the city that gives us so much joy, as well as to organizations that promote equality (since nothing ruins a party like oppression).  Our theme ideas are only outmatched by our "spirited" throws--barware for a good time, candles for the afterworld, and compasses and maps as guides to both.  Don't worry though--even without a legend you can't miss us, because we'll always be legendary!
