Become a Member of Krewe Rio

What is a Rio membership?

A Rio membership is comprised of a primary member plus a secondary member or guest.

The krewe does not offer single memberships. A husband and his wife, a woman and her date, two close friends…all of these would be examples of two people on one membership.


The Benefits of Membership

With membership in the Krewe of Rio comes a terrific package of benefits. First, a membership comes with admission for two for the summer dance party we call the Rio Sambada. This function is restricted to members only. Included in the membership are two admissions to the Krewe of Rio Ball, which we produce for our members every January. Next, a membership comes with two spots on a float in the Rio Parada

Aside from these benefits are the friendships you will make with other members of Rio through different activities throughout the year: Krewe Crawfish Boil, Pre-Parada Party, Float Parties, Mardi Gras Day Parade Party, and many more.


What do I need to do to become a member?

All new members must be sponsored (recommended) by two existing Krewe Members.  Once you have the recommendation, complete the form on this page to being the application process.  

Once accepted you will be asked to pay a one time Member Initiation Fee of $200 and the Annual Membership Fee of $500.  The only additional expenses for Krewe Members would be the cost beads/throws and float costumes if you are riding in the Parada.
