Krewe of Ancient Druids
Date: Wednesday, Feb 26, 2014 | Location: Uptown | Time: 6:30pm
Established in 1998, the Ancient Druids take their name from the priest class of ancient Celtic societies who connected their people with the gods and nature.
The Ancient Druids are a parade-only krewe, they do not have a bal masque or traditional royalty. Their membership is limited to members of other Carnival organizations, and they will not permit more than 200 members. There is one traditon that the Druids observe, the complete secrecy of its members and its king, the Archdruid, whose identity is never revealed.
Please note that tickets are available for grandstand seating on St. Charles Avenue, but tickets are not required to see the parade. If you arrive early enough, you can claim a spot on the route with a blanket and some chairs.
