Krewe de Tigris was born of myth and magic.  For over 5,000 years, the tiger has represented power, passion and a fierce spirit. Magnificent in a yellow-gold coat striped with black, the tiger paces the plains of Auburn with grace. In 1808, author and poet William Blake told the tale by saying, “Tiger, tiger, burning bright in the forests of the night.  What immortal hand or eye dare frame thy fearful symmetry?  How powerful our God must be to fashion such a creature”.

The sprit of our Krewe exists in the dreams of a people who share a love of place and a sense of history.  These dreams vest in the mysteries of a land where children dig for buried treasure in the red clay, where friends are as family, where time is measured by church bells, where celebrations erupt on a street corner and trees are draped with wisps of white.  


To victory!  To the tigers who prowl as Krewe de Tigris.



Krewe de Tigris is a parading Krewe that was established in 2016 as a social organization with the sole purpose of bringing together family, friends and community to celebrate the merriment of fellowship year-round, with special emphasis placed on the Mardi Gras season.



The Krewe is organized and operated for the pleasure and recreation of its members, extending to the community at large.

  • Membership is open to community members willing to actively participate in the socially philanthropic mission of the Krewe as well as participate in the funding of such mission through reasonable annual dues.

  • The selection of focus on the Mardi Gras season is to celebrate the history of the State of Alabama where the current practice of the Mardi Gras celebration began.


Though most people associate Mardi Gras with New Orleans, Mobile, Alabama, began holding the festival in 1703, 15 years before it started in Louisiana. Based on a French Catholic tradition, the celebration is now a city-wide holiday in Mobile, where even schools close down to celebrate.
