Krewes for Karnival’s First Responders was founded in 2012 as a way for carnival krewes to show their appreciation for the men and women who keep the parade route safe and fun. Founded in 2012, Krewes for Karnival has raised over $550,000 for New Orleans first responders. Created as a way for carnival krewes to give back to the men and women who make Mardi Gras safe for all families, riders, and tourists, we are continuing the effort in 2023. Over the past eleven years, Krewes for Karnival has purchased fluorescent safety vests, a Firing Arms Simulator, blue tooth communicators, ballistic helmets, vests, Kevlar, carbon monoxide detectors, EMS bicycles, and much, much more. Krewes for Karnival’s success is owed to all the parading Mardi Gras krewes. Each year, krewes unite for this noble cause and generously donate through sponsorships, food donations, and auction items.
