  About Us...
The Krewe of Sobek is dedicated to bringing the time-honored traditions and experience of Mardi Gras to the inner city.  We are a non-profit, social and charitable organization founded in April 2003. The Krewe’s goals are to support organizations that provide a helpful hand to those in need within our community. Also, to provide fellowship among the members and the community, take part in charitable and non-political civic causes and participate in various parades and celebrations in the Louisiana area.
