2020 Magical Mystery Krewe Theme
Our 2020 theme: Magical Mystery Krewe


The Ball is an annual event created by the Mysti Krewe of Nimbus – Portland’s Louisiana style Mardi Gras Krewe. Our goal is to bring Louisiana Fat Tuesday culture to the Pacific Northwest with an authentic Ball, and a free community Mardi Gras Day Parade!

During the rest of the year the Krewe participates in many community parades, events, and fundraisers. Each year we also raise money for twin non-profit organizations with the the Good Werks Krewe.
