Info via AudobonInstitute.org:
Over 20,000 visitors are set to converge upon the Audubon Zoo for the 10th Anniversary of Soul Fest. Soul Fest has evolved into one of New Orleans’ biggest celebrations of African American history.
The two day family-oriented event will feature live musical performances by local Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, and Gospel artists at our Capital One Stage; including New Orleans’ own and Grammy Award Nominee Luke James!
Greek Steppers, Mardi Gras Indians and a special second line will all be a part of the 10th Anniversary celebration!
Visitors will enjoy authentic soul food prepared by local restaurants and caterers, and in addition to our exciting collection of exotic animals, kids will enjoy hands on activities at the Kid’s Cultural tent. Visitors of all ages can receive free wellness information from local health organizations. Visitors can also purchase a special commemorative 10th Anniversary Soul Fest tee shirt!
No outside food or beverages please!
