About the Krewe of Hebe


KOH was created in 1989 as a social organization to serve as a vehicle to local

business owners to host a wide variety of visitors spending time at the remarkable

B&B's, hotels, motels, restaurants, specialty shops, antique and gift shops.


By the 1980's, Jefferson was well established as a tourist destination in Northeast, 

Texas. There were, however, several months during the year when business was 

slow. Then, a group of local business owners and citizens pulled together and

organized the Krewe of Hebe, with the ultimate objective of hosting an annual Mardi Gras celebration in Jefferson. In order to achieve that goal, and raise funds with which to finance the Mardi Gras expenses, the Krewe actually hosted the first Jefferson Heritage Triathlon in July 1989. 


The Krewe of Hebe has since worked tirelessly and diligently over the years to provide entertainment for the entire family during the Mardi Gras Weekend and has been host to several other events and fundraisers over the last 30 years!   


The Krewe of Hebe has also been using their fundraising efforts to donate to local organizations for many years. We have supported Boys & Girls Club, Boo Benefit, Casting for Kids and many more! However, in recent years KOH has decided to become heavily involved with the local chapter of  Marine Toys for Tots Foundation and will now be the official sponsor for the Marion County chapter. 

Please check into all of our events! We are sure that you will find something to get involved in that peaks your interest!
