In the months leading up to Carnival Season (approx Nov – Feburary), The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus hosts several open studio nights in our amazing Den space at the incredible multi-disciplinary arts space “Castillo Blanco”.
These Open Builds are your chance to mix and mingle, get involved and meet other krewe members, create throws, work on your costume, help with the big Krewe builds and get advice and access to tools that can help you assemble your very OWN amazing parade contraptions.
The address for Castillo Blanco is 4321 Saint Claude Ave., New Orleans, LA 70117.

As usual there will be several extra ad hoc open builds AS NEEDED during the week leading up to the parade.
Chewbacchus has an amazing Den at Castillo Blanco complete with climate control, good lighting and power. However, the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus does not own Castillo Blanco. Chewbacchus merely rents den space at C.B. for storage and builds. There are other tenants whose schedules, needs and space must be respected.
Castillo Blanco is not a retail location and there are no store hours. Nobody works at Castillo Blanco and nobody lives at Castillo Blanco. It is a facility for storage, special projects, build nights, and special events.
Krewe members should not expect any access whatsoever to the building outside of the normal open build schedule. There is limited space available for rent for those who would like to store contraptions at Castillo Blanco if they don’t want to haul stuff back and forth from the building. Price = $2/square foot per month based on the amount of space your “thing” takes up. Just keep in mind you will only be guaranteed to be able to get in to work on your stuff during regularly scheduled open builds. If you are interested in renting storage space at Castillo Blanco you should contact Space Commander Chewbaccacabra.
Castillo Blanco will go into full IKOC mode for the week of the parade. Contraptions, props, etc can be dropped off and stored there during the week leading up to the parade for FREE.
