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.

King Arthur Golf Tournament

– On Saturday July 31st 2021, The Krewe of King Arthur will hold its Inaugural Golf Tournament at Stonebridge Golf Club of New Orleans. Funds raised at this event will benefit the Krewe’s Camelot Nation Program which supplies educational materials to schools and other youth organizations to combat bullying.

Recent studies have been conducted across the country on the prevalence of bullying, bullying impact and treatment, and anti-bullying laws. In the findings, Louisiana ranks fifth for percent of high school students bullied on school property and first in the nation for percent of high school students bullied online, percent of high school students involved in physical fights at school, and percent of high school students who attempted suicide. The Krewe of King Arthur’s Camelot Nation is working to combat this by providing educational materials to schools and youth organizations.

  • Individual Players – $100 or Teams of Four – $400. (Registration may be submitted in advance or at the event, beginning at noon)
  • Not a Golfer? You can still support this cause by purchasing a Social Pass to the event. $50 Social Passes include access to the Clubhouse, Food, and Drinks from 1:30PM – 4:00PM.
  • No Refunds: In the event of a rain out, the event will continue as planned in the Clubhouse. Rainchecks will be given to all players to return on a day of their choice

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.
