For the past eight years, Minor Mishap Marching Band has happily hosted numerous free, public events. Celebrating community in public space is one of our main objectives, and it’s important to us that most of these events remain free, open, and inviting to all. However, throwing these events usually costs us money. As these events have grown, we’re realized that some of them might really benefit from a bit more infrastructure. We have applied to the City for public arts funding for the first time this year. Additionally, we are asking the community who values these events to help us make them happen.
The good news is that this isn’t some boring ol’ donation snooze-fest – WE ARE STARTING A KREWE, and YOU ARE INVITED to be in it! “Krewe” is a very old Mardi Gras term that describes “a group of revelers who band together to host balls, parades or social events.”
Sounds fun, doesn’t it?
We know many of you love dancing through the streets in brassy revelry, wearing magnificent costumes, and celebrating together. We know many of you also share with us the goals of fostering a culture of community-connection, celebration, and public art, right here in our dear Austin, TX. We would like to invite you to be directly involved in making these wonderful things happen, year round, in Austin, as founding members of the Krewe de Mishappiness!

- Admission to the Carnival de Halloween Ball on October 21st.

We want to directly involve you in creating the culture you want to see here in Austin, and so the Krewe de Mishappiness experience is $25-100, sliding scale. Much cacophonous brass and splendid revelry will be had. Thank you for your support!
