Krewe of Troubadours

The Krewe of Troubadours is a premier Mardi Gras krewe located in Lafayette, LA. For over six decades, members of the Troubadours have celebrated Mardi Gras with the most lavish costumes and regality found anywhere during the Mardi Gras season.

To understand the history of The Order of the Troubadours, one must begin many years prior to Richard Coeur de Lion's first appearance on the stage of Isenberg Hall in Lafayette, Louisiana on the campus of Cathedral High School in 1953. The journey began in 1947 when the Quota Club, an organization of local businesswomen, began to present lavish Mardi Gras pageants under the direction of Mrs. Gloria Hayes Patton Knox.
