The Pussyfooters are thrilled to once again be a part of Festigals and hope you will join us in raising much need funds for the The New Orleans Family Justice Center.
The iconic Pussyfooters marching group is 100-plus members strong, all women over 30, parading in their trademark pink plumage and corsets in nearly 50 parades, fundraisers and special events year round. The members reflect the city that they represent, and are diverse in all senses of the word. Before they lace up their white Doc Marten boots and hit the streets as the pink glittery army, the women represent a variety of professions, body types, ethnicities and ages. The Pussyfooters are doctors, teachers, attorneys, artists, engineers, writers, accountants, entrepreneurs, mothers, aunties, sisters, wives, grandmothers and more. As a group, the Pussyfooters marching club encourages empowerment self-confidence via performances as well as by coming to together to serve. But make no mistake, they have a good time doing it. Their motto is:“We are Majorettes from the Mothership sent here to help the party people get their groove on!”
