As you may have heard in the recent news, the City of New Orleans will NOT permit parades for Mardi Gras 2021 due to COVID concerns. As much as this breaks our hearts, we agree that the safety of our membership and community is paramount.
This means that 2021 membership dues will be rolled over to 2022 as per our published guidance during the membership drive regarding the possibility of a COVID cancellation. (see excerpt below)
From Krewe Announcement 05-07-2020 – If the King Arthur parade cannot roll due to COVID-19, then dues paid for 2021 will be automatically transferred to the 2022 Mardi Gras season regardless of dues increase”.
This also means that membership for the 2021 Mardi Gras season is now closed. We will open membership again at a later date.
We will be adding our brand new King Arthur Facemask to our online store SOON. The price for these will be $5 each and we will make every effort to ship these Facemasks to you (at an additional cost) if you let us know you’d prefer that.
Please contact your Float Lieutenant if you have any questions.
