Joyeux Anniversaire, Jeanne d’Arc!
Celebrating St. Joan of Arc’s birthday and Twelfth Night, Krewe de Jeanne d’Arc will produce “Tableaux de Jeanne d’Arc” a medieval-themed live performance drive-by event, inspired by Joan’s time in 1400s France. Joan of Arc liberated the citizens of Orleans, France, from a British siege in her first victory in 1429—resulting in her moniker “The Maid of Orleans.” We honor our own unofficial patron saint, The Maid of New Orleans: the beloved golden French Quarter statue, a gift to the City of New Orleans from France in the 1950s, and our French history and heritage. We plan to bring most of the props, characters, performance groups and music to our fans in person but from a safe distance.
We are committed to keeping krewe members and the public safe and to respecting city and state coronavirus guidelines. All participants will be wearing face masks and will keep 6 feet apart (usually more). There will be no close contact between people, and we will not be handing out throws.
