The Krewe of Pygmalion is a New Orleans Carnival Club founded in 1999 by a group of Carnival veterans who wanted to provide a high-quality parade during the first week of the Mardi Gras Season. Our annual parade follows the traditional St. Charles Avenue route, and is the most anticipated events of the Carnival season. Thousands of people line the streets to catch our colorful floats, captivating marching bands, and fantastic throws.

New Orleans Mardi Gras is the biggest outdoor party in the world, and the Krewe of Pygmalion’s foremost goal is to create the most enjoyable Mardi Gras experience for all our riders and friends. The Krewe of Pygmalion is New Orleans’ newest parading organization comprised of both men and women, which parades the first weekend of the Carnival season; we like to kick off with the best parade and the best party.

We kick off our parade day with a pre-parade party and upon conclusion of our parade we end it with an after-parade party, PYGMALIONFEST.  Pygmalion Fest has become THE party on the first weekend of Mardi Gras!

WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2024 CARNIVAL SEASON!  Want to become a member of Pygmalion?
