Joan of Arc Parade
January 6, 7pm
This annual French Quarter walking parade is always held on Joan of Arc's birthday, January 6, which is also Twelfth Night! The Krewe de Jeanne d’Arc includes approximately 400 paraders dressed in medieval clothing handing out thematic handmade favors, accompanied by moveable art pieces, live music, knights, royalty, peasants, angels, and several “Joans” of Arc. The parade tells the story of the life of St. Joan of Arc, unofficial patron saint of New Orleans and military hero of our namesake city, Orléans, France.
