Soul Fest at Audubon Zoo

March 08 – 09, 2014

The performance lineup for the annual Soul Fest is at Audubon Zoo has a distinctly local flavor this year.

Among the familiar names who will be taking the stage during the two-day event are The Soul Rebels and Big Sam’s Funky Nation on Saturday, March 8, and Shamar Allen and Glen David Andrews on Sunday, March 9.

More than a dozen acts will perform on the Capital One Stage for the 11th annual Soul Fest, which has evolved into one of New Orleans' biggest celebrations of African American culture. The first festival of the spring season in New Orleans is expected to attract thousands to Audubon Zoo.

Presented by AARP and sponsored in part by The Bardell Company, Amerigroup and Marathon Petroleum Company, Soul Fest features live performances by local jazz, rhythm & blues and gospel artists.

Visitors can sample authentic soul food prepared by local restaurants and caterers and get an up-close look at the Zoo's collection of exotic animals. Children also can enjoy hands-on activities at the Children's Global Playground. Free wellness information from local health organizations will be available to everyone.
