The Krewe of Priscus was established as a not-for-profit organization with the sole purpose of bringing together men and women from all walks of life to celebrate the history and merriment of our great City of Pensacola with a special emphasis placed on the Mardi Gras Season. Our Krewe’s goal is to Magnanimously honor our ancestors who graced our streets and catalyzed the fibers of our city. Through our various endeavors of engagement, we will uplift our community and commemorate the cultivation of Mardi Gras in Pensacola.
1874 marked the beginning of Pensacola’s Mardi Gras with the first Knights of Priscus. With the formation of our new Krewe, we wanted to embody the spirit of Pensacola’s historical past. We’ve taken time to work with various leaders throughout our community on how to best represent our unique culture.
Without spoiling the details, our float, the Pride of Pensacola, is designed to encompass the legends and symbols of Pensacola’s incredible heritage. Frisco, the downtown Garden Street train, will be a focus point of our Krewe.
