The Krewe of Muses is distinguished as the first all-female Mardi Gras krewe to parade at night uptown New Orleans. In Greek mythology, the Muses are the nine daughters of Zeus. No festivity in Olympus was considered complete without their joy-inspiring presence, and on earth no fine art, scientific, or intellectual endeavor was undertaken without humbly seeking their inspiration.

Centuries later, the Krewe of Muses continues celebrating the wildness and virtues of these goddesses, as well as their place in the mystique of New Orleans. Since 2001, our organization has grown to include over 1,500 members. Our vision is to celebrate the artistic and cultural resources of our community and incorporate them into our Mardi Gras tradition, making the entire community a part of the Krewe of Muses parade.

We are known for our year-long commitment to philanthropic works, infamously satirical floats, and, of course, fabulously glittered shoe-themed throws. Though our organization is young relative to long tradition of Carnival in New Orleans, we have transformed local traditions, namely popularizing all-female parades and signature throws. Plus, we throw a great party.

Happy are they whom the Muses love!
