The Krewe of Krazo (Ozark spelled backwards) was the first Eureka Springs Mardi Gras Krewe, so we own and maintain this site, but we certainly aren’t the only Krewe!
Eureka Springs is fortunate to have a number of excellent Krewes, all unique, all necessary to make Mardi Gras happen! We proudly hail our fellow Krewes and humbly thank them for standing beside us to serve the wonderful village of Eureka Springs!

Krewe du Kork History:
Established in 2017, Krewe du Kork follows the Carnival institution of the “Social Aid & Pleasure Club” and celebrates wine, spirits, food, fun, and cultural and historical heritage. Krewe du Kork hosts tastings, dinners, and other festive outings throughout the year. In addition to planning social events, Krewe du Kork promotes a sense of unity in the community and performs charitable works.
Community-based, beloved projects are exactly why the Krewe du Kork was formed by Ko-Kaptains Cne’ Breaux and Ilene Powell. They wanted to combine the Mardi Gras traditions of giving back, food, fun, and of course, all things Kork!
Krewe du Bon Repos is a group of merry revelers hailing from the Springdale and Eureka Springs area. After many years of Mardi Gras parade watching from a balcony overlooking Spring Street, Krewe du Bon Repos was born in 2017! Each year, we gather to build a float based on the theme for the year. Since this year’s theme is Fairytales, Fables and Forklore, we’ll be rolling our favorite fairytale, ‘Shrek’! Laissez Le Bon Temps Rouler!
The Krewe of Barkus is a community group where dogs and people come together to have fun. See us in the Eureka Springs Day Parade!
