The Krewe of Freret paraded for more than 40 years until the mid-1990s. In 2011, the resurgence of the krewe began with seven Loyola graduates who wanted to unify enthusiastic young professionals and infuse vigor into Carnival while revitalizing the Freret corridor.

Today, the co-ed Krewe of Freret is known for its penchant for locally produced throws, including hand-decorated masks the members create themselves.

Every year, Krewe of Freret royalty is crowned at a public coronation ceremony held at Royal Street and Elysian Fields Avenue immediately preceding Krewe du Vieux and Krewe Delusion. Other events include a Black-Tie Ball with popular local performers. Ticket sales benefit the Son of a Saint organization.
