Soul Fest at Audubon Zoo

March 04 – 05, 2017

Music, food and fun will be served in great supply at the 14th Annual Soul Fest March 4 & 5, 2017! The two day family-oriented event will feature live musical performances by local Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, and Gospel artists! The 14th annual Soul Fest opens on Saturday, March 4 with performances by HiLyfe, the Gospel Soul Children, Anjelika Joseph, Mike "Soulman' Baptiste, LACEE and other jazz, rhythm & blues and gospel artists who are expected to attract thousands to Audubon Zoo for one of New Orleans' biggest celebrations of African-American culture. Visitors can purchase authentic soul food prepared by local restaurants and caterers, and also enjoy the Zoo's collection of exotic animals! Kids can create their very own Soul Fest souvenir. Festival goers can also visit with local health, education and social service organizations and receive valuable wellness and lifestyle information. Soul Fest will also feature a tribute to African American Firsts tribute, recognizing locals who have made their mark on the community. Honorees are: Former Tulane University head football coach Curtis Johnson; the Rev. Isaiah Franklin, maintenance foreman for Monsanto Chemicals; Pvt. Journae King, trainee for Artillery Tactical Data Systems in the Louisiana National Guard; Toni Mobley, Audubon Nature Institute senior vice president; and McDonogh 35 High School. On Sunday, March 5, Andrews will close out the festive weekend at the Capital One Pavilon with one of his trademark performances of gospel, jazz, blues and brass band music. Andrews, who introduced himself to national and international audiences with the release of the acclaimed album "Redemption' in 2014, is part of a musical family rooted in the culturally-rich Treme neighborhood. His cousins include trumpeter James Andrews and Troy "Trombone Shorty' Andrews. Soul Fest is included with Audubon Zoo admission or membership. No outside food or beverages are permitted. Soul Fest is presented by AARP and sponsored in part by The Bardell Company.
