2020 Inaugural Krewe of Oshun Parade and Festival
You are invited to join us for the First Mardi Gras parade in North Baton Rouge.
The inaugural theme is "Wakanda Now: Celebration, Prosperity and Expansion."
The Oshun Parade will bring back the idea of African American parades in the capital city as it once was in 1947. The parade rolls in historic Scotlandville, championing the culture and heritage of North Baton Rouge. It will shoelace the world-renowned Southern University Human Jukebox marching band as well as 5-7 local high school bands, 3 of which have won national awards. This parade will showcase Mardi Gras Indians and feature for the first time publicly the historic black cowboys of Baton Rouge on their horses. The parade concludes with an all-out festival, complete with games, activities, food, contests, music and performances, and a battle of the bands from local high schools.
Be a part of the Inaugural Krewe of Oshun as we provide a Perfect Time for our Community to Come Together. Enjoy all of the Culture and History we have to offer.
