Membership is open for 2019! Membership prices increase on May 30 (Joan’s Feast Day), Nov. 1 (All Saints Day) and Dec. 1.
Two types of Krewe de Jeanne d’Arc membership:
Full Members: Full members “Officers” walk in the parade portraying medieval French townspeople and characters associated with Joan’s story. They choose and provide their own costumes (help available!), and they hand out favors (“throws”) to the crowd. Our standard throws, matchbooks, tea light candles, and prayer cards are included with membership, and most members create or provide additional throws. Membership dues are essential for us to finance the parade expenses such as parade permits and musicians. View pricing from $125. Individual members of pre-approved groups: sign up here! (Skinz-N-Bonez, Marian Servants, Chorus Girls, Muff-a-Lottas, Maison de Ponce, and Caravella Squad) School groups: sign up here.
Foot Soldier Members. (FREE Volunteers) Foot soldiers handle important parade functions like walking security and carrying banners. They do NOT give hand out throws, so they can focus on their assigned task. Foot soldiers are included in member events and are loaned a basic medieval costume, which must be picked up in advance. Foot soldiers may sign up with friends and may request to be assigned to parade tasks near fellow foot soldier friends or full member friends. We do our best to keep friends together but ultimately the foot soldier’s job is to go where needed. NOTE: Foot soldier membership DID fill and close for the 2018 parade, so don’t wait too long to sign up!
