The O.C.

Other great entertainers include the Treme Brass Band, Fredy Omar, Lucky Lou, Creole Wild West Mardi Gras Indians, The Black Men of Labor, Sistahs Making a Change, Kuumba Institute, gospel choirs from New Home Family Worship Center and New Hope Baptist Church, and more.  Be there for the tribute to the late pastors Robert C.

      We’re moving on the boulevard.  Come to the festival and see what’s happening, and stick around for an amazing announcement about more excitement coming to the Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. corridor. If you’re interested in volunteering or being a crafts/retail vendor call (504) 528-1806 or (504) 569-9070.
