It’s your once-a-year chance to experience the finest brass bands and the top Creole foods of New Orleans all in one fun weekend. The Tremé Creole Gumbo Fest is coming November 18-19, 2017, and if you love to kick back with great gumbo and cool music, you’re going to want to be there.
The weekend fest, which is hosted by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, will be held in Louis Armstrong Park in the city’s Tremé neighborhood, just north of the French Quarter. This is the 10th year of the fest which presents one of the finest lineups of traditional and contemporary New Orleans brass bands anywhere in the world. Granny-award winning Rebirth Brass Band will headline the event, which will also feature such top names as the Hot 8, the Pinettes, Original Pinstripe, and Trumpet Mafia.
And all while you’re listening to these top sounds, you can be savoring some of the NOLA’s best gumbo, a dish that perfectly represents our mix of cultures and flavors.The wide-ranging variations will come from 14 different vendors. A food court in Congo Square will also offer savory favorites, as well as a cooking demonstration stage and panel discussions on all things gumbo. In addition to food and music, the fest will feature a large Arts Market with fine art and home furnishings by local talent.
