COVID-19: We plan to comply with all City of New Orleans guidelines and we do plan to parade if permitted. We encourage our members to support us through a Yeoman non-parading membership for $50 this year, and if we find out in late fall or December that a parade will be permitted, Yeoman members will have the opportunity to upgrade to a parading membership if you choose to participate. Of course, supporting the krewe at the usual parading or donor membership level is also welcome. (Find out more)
Donor levels: Add a little lagniappe to support our parade and related cultural and educational events. All donor levels include a couples parading membership.
Yeoman: Individual 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.) 2021: Yeoman members will be given the opportunity to upgrade to parading memberships for an additional $75 if we find out we will get to parade.
