Meet this year's Krewe of Sobek royal court here and find out more about krewe membership here. 

Much like other krewes in the Ark-La-Tex, Sobek is centered on service to the community.

The Krewe of Sobek is dedicated to bringing the time-honored traditions and experience of Mardi Gras to the inner city.  We are a non-profit, social and charitable organization founded in April 2003. The Krewe’s goals are to support organizations that provide a helpful hand to those in need within our community. Also, to provide fellowship among the members and the community, take part in charitable and non-political civic causes and participate in various parades and celebrations in the Louisiana area.


We hope to see you at both the Krewe of Sobek bal and parade this weekend. We will be on hand for both and will be posting pictures so make sure to check back! We'll also have members on the air later this week so make sure you're listening!
