Julie Lea is the Founder and CEO of the Mystic Krewe of Nyx, the largest parading organization in Mardi Gras history. She is also the Founder and CEO of the Krewe of Pandora and the Nola Nyxettes. A New Orleans native, Julie cherishes all of the opportunities she has to contribute to her one-of-a-kind community and keep the spirit of New Orleans alive and well.

Julie Lea formed the Mystic Krewe of Nyx in 2011 and has since led it to thrive as the largest parading krewe in Mardi Gras history. Since that time, the Mystic Krewe of Nyx has steadily grown its impact as a mainstay not just in the parade, but in the community. In 2013, Julie extended the sisterhood of the Krewe of Nyx by overseeing the formation of the Nola Nyxettes, the first dancing troupe born out of a Mardi Gras Krewe.

In 2015, Julie launched The Krewe of Pandora, the Mystic Krewe of Nyx’s “sister krewe” in Jefferson Parish. Most recently, in 2018, the Mystic Krewe of Nyx earned the honor of being the biggest parading krewe in history — serving as a huge win for the group, and meeting a personal goal of Julie’s from day one.

Julie Lea is proud to contribute to her city. She has been awarded the Key to the City of New Orleans six times, and has earned New Orleans City Council Proclamations twice. She holds a number of community partnerships, with organizations spanning causes such as disease research and treatment, transformational learning, criminal justice, and more. Read Less
