2014 TREME CREOLE GUMBO FESTIVAL
The seventh annual Treme Creole Gumbo Festival takes ace Saturday, Nov. 8, and Sunday, Nov., 9, 2014, from 11 a.m. to 7:15 p.m. both days in Louis Armstrong Park. Admission is free. Once again, we present the finest collection of traditional and contemporary New Orleans brass band jazz to be found anywhere on the planet.
We'll also feature a huge smorgasbord of New Orleans' signuature dish - gumbo, in a variety of styles - along with our second annual Vegan Gumbo Contest.
As always, we will feature a large Arts Market, with dozens of local artists showcasing handmade fine art and home furnishings. This year, we're merging the Arts Market with our Kids Area, with local artists leading interactive and creative workshops. Parents, take note: The Kids Area also will have enclosed areas for diaper-changing and breastfeeding.
And don't miss two special performances by two of the student bands that were audience favorites at our annual Class Got Brass competition in March, the St. Augustine High School Brass Band and the Edna Karr High School Brass Band.
