Welcome to Baton Rouge's biggest and best Mardi Gras Krewe's online home. Since 1998, the Krewe of Orion has utilized Carnival as a means to encourage fellowship, community service, philanthropy and good will through various social and civic endeavors. We look forward to bringing these qualities to Baton Rouge again with our Annual Parade and Ball on February 7th, 2015!

We'd like to invite you to look around. If you're a member, our Members Area will allow you to update your contact information, catch up on the latest Krewe news, find out about upcoming events, pay your dues and purchase beads! Our new website is a convenient, easy way to keep up with Orion all year long!

Orion Post Office Box Issue

If you received returned mail intended for Orion, please resend ASAP. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
