Responsibilities of Ladies and Gentlemen in the King’s service

  • Costume as befits a medieval noble lady, lord or knight.  (Costume Guide) Layer underneath for warmth.  No modern coats, purses or bags on top of your costume. Medieval-ish baskets, bags, cloaks, furs and shawls are welcome to top off your costume.
  • Report for duty at 5 p.m. sharp at the Natchez Pavilion on the river near Toulouse and Decatur.
  • Behave with courtly decorum and avoid public drunkenness and lewdness during the parade.
  • Your King will provide throws for you to distribute on his behalf, so additional throws are purely optional. If you wish, you may purchase throws from the Krewe de Jeanne d’Arc (almost sold out) to distribute your noble largesse or make or buy your own throws. One easy and fitting suggestion is paper crowns.
  • Feel free to browse our website to learn more about Joan of Arc and our parade, and you are welcome to attend other krewe events.
