A MUST SEE Parade this season -

The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus

The Krewe of Chewbacchus is a Carnival Krewe for the most revelrous of Star Wars Freaks, Trekkies, Whovians, Mega-Geeks, Circuit Benders, Cryptozooligists, UFO Conspiracy Theorists, and all the rest of Super Nerdom.

We are Bacchanalian Revelry + Sci Fi = BacchanALIENS.

We have several awesome events planned including: a Sci Fi Fashion Show "Set Your Phasers to Stunning", Sci Fi movie nights at the Big Top, art bike pub crawls and parades, and workshops and open studio sessions on everything from building homemade flying saucers to circuit bending experimental musical instruments.

In this, our first year, will be rolling as our very own full-on parade complete with our own brass bands, royalty, floats, throws, and theme. King Chewbacchus himself will lead our krewe and ride on Eyegore the Royal Rickshaw. We are building a fleet of Flying Saucers, a Bar2D2 float, a giant BacchanALIEN puppet and a Boozebot 4200 puppet, experimental X-Wing Art Bicycles, and much much more...

Zulu throws coconuts, Muses throw shoes, the Krewe of Chewbacchus throws wicked cool homemade bandoleros and towels!

Chewbacchus will depart from the Big Top Gallery (1638 Clio Street) at 6:00pm on Bacchus Sunday (March 6, 2011) and march along a TOP SECRET route through the streets of New Orleans bestowing the blessing of our "Sacred Drunken Wookie" to the masses. We will eventually loop back around to the Big Top and throw down at the Chewbacchanal to fill our bellies with delicacies from the Admiral Snackbar. Prepare to rock out with Space Girl Burlesque, Brass Bands blasting Sci Fi theme songs, Giant Pyro-technic Puppetry, the Mad Scientist Rock n Roll musical stylings of the infamous and amazing C.O.G., and all sorts of other madness into the wee hours of Lundi Gras.

We need your support to help pull of this amazing undertaking. Your generosity will help us to build the floats, puppets, and parade props, pay the bands, and purchase the permits.

You are already a space cadet so you might as well make it official and join AND/OR support the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus.
