why "krewe of gumbo?"

The Krewe of Gumbo derives its name from the world famous and delicious dish called Gumbo, an aromatic soup or stew characteristic of the Creole cuisine of Louisiana, combining African, Native American, and European elements. Blending the West African okra, the French roux (flour & butter), the Spanish mixture of onions, celery, bell peppers (The Trinity), the Native American filé (ground sassafras leaves) and rice, given to the world by China.

Just like Gumbo, which combines the flavors, tastes and style of various cultures and cuisines, the people of the Sacramento region are from all over the world, with a unique and special flair that creates one of the most diverse cities in the entire country. So, as a Krewe, we’re a “Gumbo” of people – a mix of cultures blending together to parade, party & have a good time, because “Una Sums Magni” – Together we are Great!
