Louisiana Division
New Orleans Public Library
Carnival Collection

The Louisiana Division's extensive Carnival Collection includes printed materials, float and costume designs, krewe favors, photographs, and other memorabilia generated by most of the active and historical Carnival organizations from the 1860s to the present. Many of the items in the collection have come to us over the years through donations. We continue to depend on such gifts from Mardi Gras krewe members and their guests. If you would like to donate materials for the Carnival Collection please call the Louisiana Division at 596-2610 or send e-mail at archivist@neworleanspubliclibrary.org.

The collections detailed here are only a partial listing of Carnival materials available in the Louisiana Division.
