Krewe of Cork®
Wow! We did it again!
The Royal Street Stroll was a huge success with more than 140 Corkians joining the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience crowd on the street to end the Krewe of Cork year.
From the beginning of the evening, with pre-stroll activities through the stroll down Royal Street and back, the Krewe lived up to its mantra of Wine! Food! And Fun!
The stroll proceeded with Grand Marshal Steve Reynolds, King Patrick, Queen Paulette, Royal Coordinator Gillian, Banner carrier Mike Mays and The Cork Poppas from da Region leading the way. The Wine Police, led by Lt. Maurice, kept everyone’s glass full. The crowds on Royal Street certainly cherished their new Krewe of Cork beads and new acquaintances in the Krewe.
Special thanks go to the following members who voluntarily assisted with the pre-stroll preparations and helped us make things work on stroll day itself.
Jimmy Ray who loaded all of beads into his SUV and brought them to the Hotel Mazarin, where Linda Thompson, Amy Borrell, Jaynie Fedell, Allyson Cabes Navoy filled the bags with the beads and goblets and Julio Maldonado who took care of all the boxes.
Kellie Barnes, Carolyn Rose and Christie Gardes who checked everyone in and hand out the bags.
Now, we look forward to the beginning of a new 2018/2019 KOC year with membership opening July 1st 2018.

Alan, a New Orleans native, at the age of 17, received a New Orleans Art Association Scholarship to study with the renowned regionalist painter, John McCrady, at the John McCrady Art School in the French Quarter. It was there that his lifetime interest in painting the French Quarter began. Spanning a career of over four decades, Alan Flattmann is recognized as one of America’s most outstanding and gifted artists’. He was inducted into The Pastel Society of America’s Hall of Fame in 2006 and awarded the PSA Master Pastelist distinction in 1991. He is the recipient of the 1996 American Artist Art Masters Award for pastel teacher and has been listed in Who’s Who in American Art since 1981. In conjunction with the publication of the book, “Alan Flattmann’s French Quarter Impressions”, the mayor of New Orleans officially proclaimed September 28, 2002 as Alan Flattmann Day in recognition of 25 years of success painting in the French Quarter.
