You've probably heard of Krewe of Red Beans. The bean-centric walking krewe that marches on Lundi Gras has become a force for the community during the pandemic. From supporting frontline workers through their Feed the Front Line initiative to helping musicians with Feed the Second Line, they've created a web of support throughout the city. Now they've partnered with Magazine Street businesses to sell Carnival 2021 products that support their Hire a Mardi Gras Artist initiative that aims to put out-of-work artists back to work for this unusual Carnival season. Visit or contact these Magazine Street businesses throughout Carnival season to purchase t-shirts, flags, door hangers, glitter medallions, and more KRB- and Hire a Mardi Gras Artist-themed memorabilia to employ and support culture bearers in the city.
