Cryptique Krewe at Jackson Square on Mardi Gras day, 2024

Thank you for a spooktacular Mardi Gras 2024!

We just posted pics from our French Quarter shamble in our gallery! Check 'em out! Pretty sick, huh?

Interested in marching with us next year? We'd love to have you! All you gotta do is sign up on our mailing list and you'll receive news about krewe activities and events throughout the year; not just Mardi Gras, but meetups, movie nights, paper mache workshops, etc. All are welcome!

Remember, you don't gotta be an artist to join Cryptique, and you don't gotta make a paper mache mask; a lot of us just like doing so. Check out our krewe bylaws to see our costume guidelines; they are very laid-back.
