ABOUT:

Named for the Olympian god of fertility and eternal youth, the largest krewe in Mardi Gras history was founded in 1967 as a small neighborhood venture in the Bayou St. John-Gentilly area. By 1974, Endymion had grown into a super club. The krewe annually selects celebrity grand marshals such as Dolly Parton, Chicago, and the Beach Boys, who thrill the parade-goers and entertain guests at the Extravaganza held in the Louisiana Superdome following the parade. By 2000, the club’s all-male membership reached 2,000, and attendance at its after-parade party totaled more than 15,000.
