7th Annual Central City Festival – Make a Joyful Noise!

November 16, 2013
  • Location: 1600-1700 Blocks of Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard, New Orleans
  • Address: 1600-1700 Blocks of Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard, New Orleans, LA
  • Times: 11:00 am -6:00pm
  • Admission: The festival is free and open to the public.

This year’s headliner is “New Orleans Cultural Ambassador” Irvin Mayfield along with his New Orleans Jazz Orchestra Revue, no doubt bringing on exciting lyrical and instrumental surprises. Also firing up the stage will be “Latin King” Fredy Omar, the colorful Creole Wild West Mardi Indians, Lucky Lou with a youth bounce competition, Ashé’s Sistahs Making a Change and the Kuumba Institute kids. Get your secondline on with The Treme Brass Band and the Black Men of Labor.  Moreover, in memory of two giants in Central City—Bishop Robert C. Blakes Sr. and Pastor John C. Raphael Jr.—a musical memorial tribute will be presented by the choirs from New Home Family Worship Center and New Hope Baptist Church.  
 
Central City Festival also includes a health fair, a children’s area, door prizes, food and crafts vendors. Join us as we foresee a thrilling 7th year for this fun-filled neighborhood festival.
 
Meanwhile, you may have heard the buzz about the Boulevard.  The many years of efforts are now bearing fruit, from the early Civil Rights leaders who brought the great promise of the United States to African Americans long disenfranchised.  Now we are fast-forwarding to the present with founding members of the O.C. Haley Boulevard Merchants and Business Association:  Ashé Cultural Arts Center, Gulf Coast Housing Partnership, Living Witness, the Central City Partnership and Café Reconcile.  We’re growing rapidly!
