AthenaThe Krewe of Athena Carnival Club, Inc. is the newest all-female Mardi Gras club in Jefferson Parish. The carnival group was incorporated as the Krewe of Athena Carnival Club, Inc. in March of 2014. Spearheaded by a group of Mardi Gras veterans, Athena was born out of the desire to create a Mardi Gras Krewe open to professional women from diverse backgrounds. The Krewe of Athena Carnival Club, Inc. exists to promote a sense of community through service, fellowship, and fun. The Mardi Gras club is also committed to preserving and celebrating the rich traditions of Mardi Gras by hosting a beautiful street parade and grand Carnival Ball.

The carnival club is named after the Greek Goddess Athena. Athena is the goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, just warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. Athena was, perhaps, the wisest, most courageous, and certainly the most resourceful of the Olympian gods. Her tree is the olive, which represents peace, and the owl is her bird, which represents wisdom.
