Krewe of Dionysus
Slidell's Premiere Mardi Gras Krewe
About Krewe of Dionysus
Dionysus (or Bacchus in Roman Mythology) is the ancient Greek God (or Olympian) of winemaking and wine, along with “inspired madness.” It is with that in mind that The Krewe of Dionysus was founded in 1985 by a group of Northshore businessmen with the intention of bringing a family oriented old fashioned Mardi Gras good time to the City of Slidell. The King of Dionysus is selected by the membership during the annual Coronation Ball. The King then selects his queen and the two reign for a full year.
