Krewe of Cleopatra Parade Route

in Uptown New Orleans


Founded in 1972, the first all-female krewe on the West Bank moved to the East Bank in 2012, becoming the first all-female organization on the Uptown route. Their motto is: "Her beauty is timeless, her age is now...forever!" In 2018, the women celebrated their 45th anniversary with the theme “Cleopatra’s Animal Kingdom.”

Named after the Queen of Egypt, the krewe consists of 1,000 members. The fun begins with a Cleopatra Pre-Parade and ends with the post-parade Cleo Jubilee. In between, the queen travels down St. Charles Avenue on her royal barge.

Other krewe events during the year include a Masquerade Gala in September and a Rendezvous Ball in January.
