Get In Where You Fit In.
Chewbacchus (like all advanced alien entities) evolves rapidly… we are always working on initiatives to make the Krewe even MORE amazing. There are lots of ways to get involved with the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus. There are hundreds of unaffiliated individuals who simply pay their $42 dues each year, show up, and march in the parade… and that’s totally cool. But its also possible for YOU to go WAY bigger. We have many “officially” sanctioned groups who are part of the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus. Some of these groups are totally independent and highly functional, but we also have lots of VERY loosely organized parade contingents and sorta-semi-autonomous groups who develop group costumes and build their own contraptions to roll in the Chewbacchus Parade. There are even a couple ways to be a part of the fun for FREE.
- We are always looking for fresh meat for our Parade Escort Team, the Redshirt Rebellion.
- Photographers and Videographers who join the Pixel Squadron get total access to Chewbacchus events that they document.
If you have your OWN idea for a sub-krewe/mini-contingent/group theme… there is a good chance that the Overlords of Chewbacchus will embrace your idea whole heartedly and support your endeavor in every way. Forming your own sub-krewe is easy. It really comes down to a solid concept that people want to be a part of and a clever/funny name. For actual parade day logistics, please use the form a little further down the page to let us know about your parade contraptions and musical/noise acts so we can place you in the parade lineup effectively.
What, EXACTLY is a Sub Krewe?
A Sub Krewe is a smaller entity in the Krewe of Chewbacchus that has organized under a theme to roll in a cohesive group during the parade. Populations can range from 2 to over 100. Some sub krewes have contraptions and sound, others do not. Some examples include Krewe du Who, the Mystic Krewe of P.U.E.W.C, and Krewe of the Living Dead. Those building contraptions larger than a shopping cart may also register as a SubKrewe. The SubKrewe Lineup Request will be back after the Parade for 2017.
First Things First…
DO NOT EXPECT TO PAY YOUR DUES ON THE DAY OF THE PARADE.
There are over 1500 dues paying members in the Krewe, please to not add to the staggering insanity that is Line Up by waiting til the last minute.
So, Am Am I a Subkrewe?
The Gospel of Overlord Chewbaccacabra
“Cohesive group costumes and contraptions are cool. The sub-krewe capos generate lots of buzz and are enthusiastic about their groups, as they should be… We love the way IKoC has evolved. Keep in mind… IKOC will have between 1000 -1500 dues paying members this year. Only approx 30% of these members are in a “sub-krewe”/ cohesive group on ANY kind whatsoever. Our membership is MOSTLY made up of individuals and small groups of friends NOT sub-krewes. We are ALL Chewbacchus!
Do I Have to Register for LineUp?
Sub Krewes and contraptions larger than a shopping cart must register for Line Up at least one week before the parade. The last day to register is Saturday, January 31st
How do we Line Up?
Everything you need to know about Lineup is on the 2016 Parade page.You can stay in the loop about all things Chewbacchus including parties, events and of course, the parade, by joining our Facebook Group and our mailing list.
