Thank you for visiting the Twin Cities' Krewe of Janus website.
2024 Krewe of Janus and Scott Companies "Jammin' with Janus" Parade
The Krewe of Janus was established in 1984. It was organized by the Twin Cities’ Jaycees and became an independent organization in 1989. Since the first year when crowds were estimated at 35,000, the Krewe of Janus Mardi Gras parade grew to include over 100 units and an estimated crowd of 80,000 people in 1993.
In 1994, in an attempt to upgrade the parade and have more control, the Krewe downsized the parade entries to include only floats and marching units. That year, there were more than 50 floats, and the crowd was approximately 90,000. During our parade in 2022, the crowd numbered in excess of 200,000 people.
