ORIGINS OF KREWE
In 1856, six young Mobile natives saved the New Orleans Mardi Gras by forming the first KREWE. The Mistick Krewe of Comus, coined the word "krewe" and established several Mardi Gras traditions by forming a secret Carnival society, choosing a mythological namesake, presenting a themed parade with floats and costumed maskers, and staging a tableau ball.
Here in Roswell, the KREWE of Voilà was formed in the summer of 2015 at Voilà Salon. This extraordinary group of volunteers presented the Inaugural Roswell Mardi Gras Ball - Bowties & Pearls, on February 6, 2016. Followed by the 2nd Annual Roswell Mardi Gras Ball, Bourbon & Boas, held on February 25, 2017. And on February 10, 2018, our Krewe organized the 3rd Annual Roswell Mardi Gras Ball - Pinstripes & Polka Dots ~ A Roaring 20's Party! This year, the KREWE of Voilà presented CARNEVALE ~ A Night in Venice, held on March 2nd.
Our KREWE revels in planning new and exciting parties for our guests! In keeping with our sole beneficiary for 2020, STAR House, the 5th Annual Voilà Mardi Gras Ball presents - STARSTRUCK ~ A Night of Glamour!
