Mardi Gras Krewes

In New Orleans, Mardi Gras events are held by social organizations called “Krewes”. These Krewes are responsible for events such as balls and the Mardi Gras parades.

At Fur-Eh! 2020, Krewes will be a big part of Mardi Paws and every Attendee will be part of a Krewe! Just like at Mardi Gras, every Krewe needs leaders and this is where you come in!

We are now accepting applications to be a Krewe Captain for Mardi Paws. What does this mean?

  1. You’ll be the leader of one of three Krewes and you’ll get to pick the (tasteful) name of your Krewe.
  2. You’ll work with Fur-Eh! Staff to coordinate, plan and execute a ball one either Thursday, Friday or Saturday night of Mardi Paws.
  3. You’ll help design and/or decorate a float for entry into the Fur-Eh! Parade and lead your Krewe in the Parade.
  4. Your Krewe will receive up to $300 in funding (paid back as reimbursement with receipts required) towards your ball and/or your Parade float. Any amount you wish to spend over and beyond that amount is your responsibility.
  5. You’ll be required to attend several meetings throughout the course of the year leading up to Mardi Paws. (These can be attended in person or via Skype.)
  6. You will be encouraged to “recruit” assistants to help you, but how many and how you organize your Krewe is largely up to you.
  7. You’ll likely spend some of your time at Mardi Paws “working”, but it’ll all be worth it in the end!
  8. You’ll help create amazing, fun memories for all of Fur-Eh!’s Attendees as they enjoy the hospitality of your Krewe and its events.

Fur-Eh! Staff will be evaluating the events and hospitality of each Krewe over the Mardi Paws weekend and will crown a King (and/or Queen) of Mardi Paws at Closing Ceremonies.

Does this sound like something you want to be involved in? Then, be sure to apply today below.

Thank you and Laissez les bons temps rouler!
