The Krewe of Mid-City is a co-ed organization that parades on the Sunday before Mardi Gras Day each year. Our Krewe is considered a “boutique” organization because it is limited to 300 participants annually, which makes those positions highly coveted and in high demand. Our parade is the 5th oldest continuously parading organization of the New Orleans Mardi Gras season.

The Krewe of Mid-City is the only parade that decorates its floats entirely with colored aluminum foil, the same way it has been done since 1933, when it was started by Mid-City business man Charles A. Bourgeois. We invite you to learn more about the parade that critics and observers call, "The best day parade in Carnival."
The original members were men from the Mid-City civic association who paraded through the Mid-City neighborhood. After the events of September 11, 2001, the New Orleans Police Department asked the Krewe to move from our traditional Mid-City parade route to the St. Charles Avenue parade route to consolidate all Sunday parades to one part of the city.
