Regular full membership is open for the 2019 parade. Regular full membership has price increases on May 30 (Joan’s Feast Day) and Nov. 1 (All Saints Day), and closes on Dec. 1. Krewe de Jeanne d’Arc membership is for participation in our Krewe and parade. The Krewe de Jeanne d’Arc is also starting an association to support the new sister city relationship between New Orleans and Orléans, France. You can add an Orléans sister city membership to your krewe membership or purchase a sister city membership alone.
Add a little lagniappe to support our parade and related cultural and educational events. All donor levels include a couples parading membership.
Avant-garde Individuals: (Single Adult Membership) Note: The name comes from one of the divisions of an army of the 14th century. An army of the time was arrayed in three “battles” or divisions, the avant-garde (or forward guard), bataille (or main army) and arriere-garde (the equivalent of the modern reserve).
Bataille Couples: Includes two adults age 18 and above, who share a membership certificate, included throws, photo directory entry, etc.
Squire and Page: Student above the age of 18. Please email us a copy of your student ID.
Peasant Kids: For all children 17 years to 6 years old. Must be accompanied by a full member adult / guardian at the parade. Children must be at least six years old to participate in the parade.
Yeoman: Non-parading membership — if you can’t parade this year but you still want to support us. (In medieval times small landholders could either serve military duty themselves or pay a tax to have a professional soldier serve on their behalf.)
Work with krewe leaders to portray a specific character in the parade. Includes an individual parading membership and one set of custom playing cards to represent your individual character, designed by Amanda Helm. Does not include costume. This package offers a $50 savings over the price of an individual
membership and custom doubloons or playing cards purchased separately.
Orléans Sister City Membership:
Your Orléans sister city membership supports endeavors that further the exchange of culture awareness leading to a positive and supportive relationship and mutual appreciation of our individual traditions. The Orléans Sister City association
will have its own events and e-newsletter. CLICK HERE
if you want to purchase a Sister City membership ONLY. If you want to join BOTH the krewe and the Sister City association, click one of the “apply” buttons to join the krewe, then on the payment page just add both memberships to your shopping cart.
We really need everyone to fill out the application (links above). When the application is complete you should see the payment page. But just in case, here is a direct link to the payment page. The Krewe de Jeanne d’Arc is a 501c7 nonprofit organization (social club, not tax deductible).
