Welcome to the webpage of the Krewe of Thoth. Thoth entered the Carnival picture in 1947 with 50 members and five floats. The group of men who founded the Krewe created an uptown neighborhood route designed to pass in front of 14 institutions that care for persons with disabilities and illnesses and were not able to attend other parades in the City.
Thoth parades on the Sunday prior to Fat Tuesday each year through Uptown New Orleans with the most unique route in Mardi Gras. Still holding to our roots we continue to parade on a route designed to pass some of the same institutions that we were organized to pass back in ’47.
The first Thoth parade has little resemblance to the Thoth parade of today. We now parade with over 1,600 riders and 50 floats and have become one of the highlights of the Carnival scene. The men of Thoth annually shower the viewers of our street procession with literally tons of beads and trinkets.
But, Thoth is just not your average parading organization. We hold events throughout the year which makes us more than just a parade in the Carnival calendar. We are an organization….we are a club…we are a family. From our Annual Charity events to our Ball Masque and Parade…….I encourage you to visit the World of Thoth………..
