Do you love Mardi Gras? The crunch of acorns underfoot as you walk to your favorite spot ... the electric sensation you experience when those first sirens herald the parade's arrival ... the buzz of the bass drum that reverberates inside you as the marching band goes by?

You love being a parade goer. But wouldn't it be fantastic to be the one up on the float?

The Krewe of Excalibur's unique theme takes Mardi Gras to the medieval. Our krewe celebrates the best traditions of New Orleans, King Arthur, Queen Guinevere and the Knights of the Round Table. If you know the difference between a knight and a lord, a squire and a steward, and a lady and a maiden, you're already a member.

Our club is known for lavish, over-the-top court costumes and year-round social activities you can enjoy with people just like you. Mardi Gras lover? Prioritize the parade. Medieval buff? Stage a jousting tournament. Or just straddle the worlds between parade rider and partygoer. You'll have an automatic invitation to outings at Laser Tag, Knight Out Dinners and Rock 'n Bowl, with crawfish boils and shield-making parties thrown in.
