Metairie Mardi Gras Parade Schedule 2017

Krewe of Excalibur

The Krewe of Excalibur Carnival Club are preparing for their 15th Mardi Gras parade in Metairie on February 17, 2017. A Medieval theme to the organization lends itself to grand costuming and a unique look. If you are a Medieval buff you will enjoy their ball where King Arthur, with his sword Excalibur, reigns with his Queen Guenevire. Merlin and Lady of the Lake also appear.

The Krewe of Excalibur are a social Organization having several fun filled events each year.

The Krewe of Excalibur is a Jefferson Parish Parade that rides along the traditional Veterans Memorial Blvd. Route in Metairie, LA (about 10 minutes from New Orleans). It’s a safe, family atmosphere that millions of people have enjoyed over the years. This is the krewe's 14th Anniversary, and over the years they have catered to this atmosphere by making their parade a fun time with bands or dance groups between every float, by throwing items specially designed for children like youth t-shirts, stuffed castles and hand decorated shields, and by having family related socials throughout the year. They are also the first parade of the season, so it’s very well attended by the public.

About the DVD
The first Mardi Gras in America was celebrated in Mobile, Alabama in 1703. In 2007, it is still racially segregated. Filmmaker Margaret Brown (Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt), herself a daughter of Mobile, escorts us into the parallel hearts of the city s two carnivals. With unprecedented access, she traces the exotic world of secret mystic societies and centuries-old traditions and pageantry; diamond-encrusted crowns, voluminous, hand-sewn gowns, surreal masks and enormous paper mache floats. Against this opulent backdrop, she uncovers a tangled web of historical violence and power dynamics, elusive forces that keep this hallowed tradition organized along enduring color lines.
