Red Beans Parade

The Red Beans Parade began in 2008 - and launched the first "bean parade' on Lundi Gras 2009. 

Each year, Krewe members begin working on their suits after Halloween passes. On the best Monday of the year (Lundi Gras, the day before Mardi Gras) we parade through the streets of the Marigny and Treme. 

150 Krewe members parade alongside thousands of "unofficial" paraders - and we welcome everyone to make their own bean suit and join in on the fun!

We parade on Lundi Gras Day at 2pm - starting in the Marigny and then meeting the "Dead Beans" in the Treme.

Parades start at 2pm
