MYSTIC KREWE OF DRUIDS PHOTO LIBRARY
the Mystic Krewe of Druids
Parade only Krewe.
Membership limited to 200 members.
Ruled by The Archdruid whose identity is never revealed
Comprised of Carnival veterans from several other Orleans Parish parading organizations, the Ancient Druids wanted to fill an empty slot on the parade calendar, providing New Orleanians and visitors with a first-class parade one week before Fat Tuesday. A most unusual krewe, the Ancient Druids are a parade-only krewe, eschewing bal masques and traditional royalty. Their membership is also limited to members of other Carnival organizations and sits at a cut-off of 200 members. However, there is one traditon that the Druids observe; the complete secrecy of its members and its king, the Archdruid, whose identity is never revealed.
