Frequently Asked Questions

What does the Cincinnatus Club do?

The Cincinnatus Club is the organization that sponsors and supports the Legion of Mars Mardi Gras Krewe.  It is a social club that holds court at its formal, albeit military-themed, Ball and parades during Carnival, annually.

The purpose of the organization is as follows:

  •  First and foremost, to honor the past and present members of the Armed Forces, their families, and to provide the citizens of New Orleans a military-themed Mardi Gras Krewe.
  •  To encourage camaraderie among Krewe members by participating in activities of a patriotic and social nature.
  •  To conduct philanthropic activities to the benefit of military members and veterans of the United States Armed Forces and/or their families.
  •  To foster participation in Krewe activities by making all activities affordable by all members, regardless of rank or socioeconomic stature.

Who can be a member?

Membership is annual and open to both male and females as an exclusive private and social non-profit organization.  To qualify for membership, you must be twenty-one (21) years of age and above all, of good moral character, a member of the military, retired military, friend of the military (civilian) or veteran honorably discharged and be willing to support the Krewe’s purpose and strive to preserve the Krewe for future generations.  Members may also be sponsored by current members.   However, qualifying military members must always make up a majority of the Krewe.

How much are annual dues?

Members pay an annual dues amount of $350.00.  This fee has many benefits and allows you member pricing for the Ball and Parade as well as attendance at the annual Veteran's Day social, Annual Meeting, and all other social and meeting-based activities.  The dues allow you and one guest into the ball for free as part of your timely dues payment, which is a $200 value.

Why Mars (The God of War)?

Unlike Ares, the Greek God of War, who was viewed primarily as a destroyer, Mars used military power to secure peace.
