Why ride at night in inclement weather dodging bullets?

Why not ride during the day on Saturday before Mardi Gras in the most rider-friendly parade… KREWE OF TUCKS!

  • Great crowds
  • Great weather
  • The best day of the Mardi Gras season!

Tucks is a 1,300 adult member parade organization with 50% men and 50% women. The 49 year old Krewe owns a large, magnificent den and all of its floats. No krewe has more fun or energy. Tucks has the most unique and different throws. There is only one requirement for membership: you want to enjoy yourself, have a great time, and put on a magnificent show for the viewing crowd. With membership you get a Coronation Ball ticket to attend in the Grand Ballroom of the Marriott Hotel and an after party Extravaganza ticket at the Marriott both with great food and premium liquor included. There are several other events throughout the year with food, alcohol, and non-alcoholic beverages included. Also, included in your membership are 4 bags of all unique Tucks throws. Lastly, Tucks is involved in several charities and should you desire to be involved, you can participate and volunteer your services.

Come RIDE THE PARTY and be a part of the Tucks experience!

Tucks wishes to extend a heartfelt thanks to the many thousands of revelers who attend our parade every year. The crowd makes every parading minute a joy for all of the riders.

Thank you!

The Krewe of Tucks

Known for its irreverence, the Krewe of Tucks began in 1969 as a group of Loyola University students. The club takes its name from Friar Tuck, an uptown pub where two college students decided to create their own Carnival krewe after unsuccessfully trying to become white flambeaux carriers. The parade has grown from a small nighttime parade of pick-up trucks into a procession of major proportions. In 1983 the parade became a daytime event and in 1986 the parade route finally stretched to downtown. Even though the club has grown in size and stature, Tucks has not lost its sense of humor.

The Extravaganza

Come join us at the Krewe of Tucks Extravaganza after the parade! Make your Mardi Gras one to remember, and party with the Krewe of Tucks!
