The Krewe of Omega is a co-ed Mardi Gras organization committed to providing the citizens of Tangipahoa Parish and the surrounding areas with a traditional New Orleans Mardi Gras experience, in a family-friendly atmosphere, for people of all ages. A social club that is active year-round, we are dedicated to our community, and members can often be found volunteering to help with various community improvement projects the krewe supports.
Omega began in 1986 as a group of Southeastern Louisiana University students just looking to have fun. Since its humble beginnings, the Krewe of Omega has grown to include traditional New Orleans style floats, Royalty, an Annual Ball, and various other events throughout the year for its membership to enjoy.
Omega is committed to encouraging equality, diversity, and inclusion among our members. The aim is for our krewe to be truly representative of all sections of society and for each member to feel respected and equal. Omega prohibits discrimination against any person on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, age, national or cultural origin or ancestry, marital status, parental status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, health status, political affiliation, or occupation. Omega is committed to maintaining a community that recognizes and values the inherent worth and dignity of every person; fosters tolerance, sensitivity, understanding, and mutual respect among its members; and encourages each individual to strive to reach his or her own potential.
