POSTPONED – The Royals’ Ball

POSTPONED – The Royals’ Costume Ball

We regret to announce that due to the current Covid-19 situation in the City of New Orleans, we will postpone The Royals’ Ball previously scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 16th.

We are focusing on the safety of our Members, Family, and Friends to get this pandemic under control and we do not feel that a large group function would be wise at this time. We need to stay healthy, so we can have Mardi Gras 2022.

Refunds have already been issues for all tickets sold to this event.

Saturday, October 16,2021

8:00pm – 12:00am

The Cannery – 3803 Toulouse Street New Orleans, LA 70119

$75.00 VIP – 8pm entry

$50.00 General Admission – 9pm entry

The Royals’ Ball is a fun event with a costume contest, lite hor d’oeuvres served,  a limited open bar, a silent auction, a cash raffle, music, dancing, special guest performances, and more.  Come dressed as your Favorite King, Queen, Royal Figure or your take on the Royalty theme. (Please do not wear a past Krewe of King Arthur Parade costume).  Everyone will be automatically entered in the Costume Contest upon entry, so be sure to work the red carpet and make sure you are seen!  The Best Dressed Male and Female will be crowned King and Queen of the Ball (No Group Costume Awarded).

Due to Covid, we were unable to have a Bal Masque in 2021 so this event will also celebrate King and Queen XLIV.

There will be a short presentation of 2021 royalty at 10:15pm with special performances.

Become a VIP and get an extra hour to twirl on the red carpet and make sure you are seen!  Special performances between 8:00-9:00PM!!
General Admission Tickets – 9:00PM- Midnight (starting at $50)
VIP Tickets – 8:00PM – Midnight. ($75)

All ticket sales are considered donations and no refunds will be issued unless the event is canceled.

2022 Membership is now Closed

Camelot Nation,

Due to overwhelming demand, our Krewe of King Arthur membership is now closed for the 2022 parade. Sometimes though, current paid members cannot ride and are looking to SWAP out to someone else. If this is something you might be interested in, feel free to reach out to your presumptive Lieutenant for additional details on the process.

Please be sure to check back in the weeks following our 2022 parade to secure your spot for our 2023 parade.

A Statement from King Arthur

We are deeply saddened and hurt by the acts of racism that have taken place across the nation and here in New Orleans.

The Krewe of King Arthur stands firm in our belief and motto that we welcome all that share our love in Mardi Gras and New Orleans. We continue to uphold the fundamental grounds that our club was founded on 44 years ago which is one of diversity, inclusion, equality, and acceptance. We celebrate diversity and have been working for years on an anti-bullying campaign that supports our ideology. Our Krewe continues to expand the traditional story of King Arthur by embracing additional characters that represent all backgrounds and ethnicities.

Our love of New Orleans is only enhanced by the multi-faceted cultures and influential contributions of everyone within our city and surrounding areas. Our goals have always been to create a safe environment for people to enjoy Carnival while promoting equality and positive social change.

The Krewe of King Arthur has no defined relationship with any other Krewe other than having mutual members or providing support throughout the years. Any statements made by any other Krewe do not reflect the deeply held beliefs of our Krewe.

We recognize that staying silent is not an option and is betrayal to our fellow members. The Krewe of King Arthur stands with our community and behind the Black Lives Matter movement and against any forms of social injustice.

We are humbled by what our diverse board, lieutenants, and membership from all parts of the world have brought to our organization. We do not have all the answers, but we will continue our efforts for change and welcome all that share the common convictions of our Krewe. The Krewe of King Arthur continues to listen and act upon our learnings and welcomes the feedback of our members. Together we can all bring forth change – we can all be the embodiment of the legendary round table of King Arthur.
