Last year we were a bit renegade, which was all well and medieval, but this year we are charging dues to be able to pay for things like insurance and more throws, finer costumes and more birthday candles for Joan. Doesn't she deserve 598 rather than 50? (And if we could go back in time, we'd use the money to pay for her lawyer! Or, wait. As someone pointed out to me recently, she may have been WORSE off if she'd been represented!)
If you are interested in joining us, please send me an email at and tell me a bit about yourself, why you want to join, what kind of costume you already have or intend to wear, and I'll send you the p.o. box for mailing us your dues as well as other details and dates. We want everyone to have a specific role for walking with us, so either suggest a few or if you want to be assigned something, great! We have plenty of roles we want to fill...from executioner to angels.


$250 support Joan and send her and her army into battle. Because of you the parade and fete will be possible and parade participants will be well armed with throws and lovely stuff! You will be invited to the krewe party and have all membership benefits, plus a special soiree just for royalty honoring the crowning of the Dauphin (which really occurred on July 17 but whew that's hot so we'll do something in the winter for ya..)

$100 The Army. You are a member of Krewe de Jeanne d'Arc and will be armed with throws and plenty of faith and good company. You will walk with us but must provide your own costume. You may participate in the Krewe Party on January 5th at the Bienville House Hotel for a fee. You will be invited to key organizational meetings, will receive email updates, and must come to one informational meeting in December.

$50 Peasant. You can join at this level as an individual walker OR as a family (limited to 5 which equals $10 per member.) You will need to provide your own throws and costumes and we will provide workshops for those who want ideas and guidance about making handmade throws. You will receive email reminders and must attend one informational meeting in December.

$10 Bastard! You support Joan and the Army from afar and get a bumpersticker that says: PROUD TO BE A BASTARD! Krewe de Jeanne d'Arc to wear proudly on your armor or armored vehicle. You can't walk with us but you please join us at the beginning or end of the parade for our Bienville statue send-off and/or Joan statue soiree.
