Regular full membership is open for the 2020 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.
Donor levels: 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.)
Character Membership: 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. There is no extra fee to portray a character; the extra fee is for the custom playing cards or doubloons.
