Krewe of Neptune
Giving it the good ole college try!

Why Neptune?

Since its inception 1981, the Krewe of Neptune has been the largest all male Carnival Krewe on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  After Neptune’s “rebirth” from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, it has grown to once again become the premier Krewe in the region.  Known for the annual Neptune Ball, which is always the hottest ticket in town & hosts record breaking attendance each year, Neptune now is the only parading Krewe on the Saturday night prior to Fat Tuesday anywhere on the coast!  There is no other experience like parading in downtown Biloxi on an illuminated float while tens of thousands revelers are screaming for you!

By far, Neptune is the best value in Carnival!  For your $500 membership dues you get the following:

  • Your spot on a first class Neptune Float during the Biggest Street Party of Carnival….The Neptune Parade!  The Neptune Parade rolls on the Saturday prior to Fat Tuesday beginning at 5:30 PM on the streets of downtown Biloxi.  Your costume and mask will be provided as part of your membership.  All throws & beads are not part of the membership and must be bought separately.  Neptune does offer discounted bead prices from our vendors that are loaded directly onto the floats.
  • When granted full memberships, you receive tickets for you and a date to nearly famous Neptune Ball.  Neptune Ball is widely regarded as the best carnival ball outside of New Orleans.  Neptune makes sure we put on a night to remember.  To see it for yourself, visit: & view the ball video highlights on our home page.
  • Did you think the Ball was all we did on that weekend?  Not a chance!  You will also receive tickets for you and a date to the Members only Officer’s Cocktail Party that Friday night.  This is the only way to start off a week of Neptune Revelry!
  • Neptune is one of the only krewes to celebrate Mardi Gras all year long.  Our parties don’t stop when the clock strikes midnight & Fat Tuesday becomes Ash Wednesday.  Here are some of the other parties you & a guest will receive invitations to:
    • Neptune’s Spring Party – annual recruitment party….nothing but crawfish, cold ones & good times! 
    • Neptune’s Halfway to Mardi Gras Party – this one speaks for itself.....if you can't celebrate Carnival in August, celebrate being halfway there!
    • Neptune’s Fall Party – the official kick off to Carnival party for Neptune!  Tradition holds that we announce the upcoming theme for the year & reveal our royalty to the membership at this cocktail party.
    • The Tom Wall Classic Golf Tournament Awards Party – Did we mention we do charity work too?  Our annual golf tournament donates proceeds to charity.  We also throw a great party that night!
  • As a member, you will be part of a Line in Neptune.  Each line is somewhat like a “Krewe within a Krewe” and organized by a Lieutenant.  Each line hosts its own socials and meetings throughout the year which you will be invited to.
  • In years past, Neptune has also hosted many other events that are usually announced throughout the year.  They include: a membership fish fry, College Football National Championship Party, Super Bowl Party and many others.

 What makes being a part of Neptune so easy?......Nothing is mandatory!  You can come to everything or choose the events you want to participate in.  Why?  We’re confident once you attend an event, you will never want to miss another…..Join today!!!!
