Founded in 1972, the first all-female krewe on the West Bank celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2012 with a movie to the East Bank, becoming the first all-female organization on the Uptown route. Their motto is: "Her beauty is timeless, her age is now...forever!"

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.
