The Krewe of Phoenix

Laissez les bons temps rouler...

KOP Annual Ball

Each year at the beginning of the Mardi Gras season, the Krewe of Phoenix throws a fabulous ball for their guests.  The theme for the 2022 Ball was Lets Play A Game, and it was held on February 5, 2022, at Fort Whiting in Mobile, Alabama.  We celebrated the reign of Queen Helen XI and Queen Renita XI.  


At the end of the tableau, we crowned our new monarchs, King Chase XII and King Cody XII.  The 2023 Ball date and theme will be announced soon.


The Phoenix

As a mythological bird of resurrection, our emblem is poised to shake off the ashes of rebirth to reveal its rich adornments of ruby and gold.  But the real worth of our treasured emblem is its ability to draw us together in joy and celebration at the special time of our Mardi Gras Ball!

The Krewe of Phoenix 

The Krewe of Phoenix  (KOP) is an all-inclusive Mardi Gras Organization (LGBTQ) in Mobile, Alabama. Nine founding members started the organization in January 2009. The first general meeting with charter members was held on March 22, 2009.


Our main objective is to give viable support to the community. Our hope is to make a comfortable environment that will be fulfilling to all of us. Our dream is to not be complacent, but to grow and become a vital part of the community.


KOP has several events planned throughout the year, and we look forward to seeing  you at  these events.


Queen Renita XI and Queen Helen XI
