The Krewe of Muses is distinguished as the first all-female Mardi Gras krewe to parade at night uptown New Orleans. The Muses parade rolls at 6:30pm on the Thursday before Mardi Gras.

The Muses are known for our year-long commitment to philanthropic works, infamously satirical floats, and, of course, fabulously glittered shoe throws. Though our organization is young relative to the long tradition of Carnival in New Orleans, we have transformed local traditions by popularizing all-female parades, adult marching groups, and signature throws.

Happy are they whom the Muses love!
