A sub-krewe is a smaller entity in the Krewe of St. Catherine that has organized under a theme to roll in a cohesive group during the parade. A sub-krewe can include as many or as few people as desired, with a minimum of two people per sub-krewe. Some sub-krewes have contraptions, sound, costumes, signage, and, yet, others do not. This is up to the discretion of the sub-krewe. However, there will be judges along the parade route rating best costumes, performance, and overall sub-krewe.
Sub-krewes self-establish their own rules and guidelines (costume colors/basics, values, throw themes, etc). Some krewes are kid friendly, some have open membership, and some ask for additional krewe dues to cover expenses for shared resources. If you need help with this, let us know! We are happy to offer suggestions or point you in the direction of resources.
If you have an idea for a sub-krewe /group theme, we welcome your idea whole heartedly. Forming your own sub-krewe is easy. It really comes down to a solid concept that people want to be a part of and a good name. We ask that sub-krewe names not be solely a business name, but they may incorporate a business name if desired (ex: Choo Choo Krewe, sponsored by Amtrak).
