The Krewe d’Argent was founded in 1997. The name means “the krewe of money or gold” as its original intent was to be limited to those employed in the financial field.

 

Today, it is open to all those who want to give back to our fine city by perpetuating the Mardi Gras tradition. In 1998, the krewe was one of the original krewes to participate in the Kickoff Parade on the Friday before Mardi Gras and continues this today.

Current membership in this small krewe is approximately 40 men and women. All float riders wear the traditional Mardi Gras colors with either purple or green costumes and gold hats and are easy to identify we are the only krewe wearing the traditional New Orleans white gloves.
