Celebrate One of the Most Beloved Neighborhoods in the City at This Free Street Fest

From October 5-7, the historic Tremé neighborhood will host the annual Treme Fall Festival. All weekend, visitors can enjoy the music and food of this cherished New Orleans neighborhood. Treme Fall Fest is a donation-based event developed by the Historic Faubourg Tremé Association to benefit the many cultural destinations found with the historical community of Tremé.

The festival supports the architecture, culture, and history of Tremé. It is held on the streets bordering the St. Augustine Catholic Church, located at the corner of Henriette Delille and Gov. Nicholls streets. Along the streets, you’ll find vendors and performers, offering a great experience to honor the unique history and heritage of this neighborhood.

As America’s Oldest African American Neighborhood, Tremé is a site of significant economic, cultural, political, social, and legal events that have shaped the course of events in Black America for the past two centuries.

The residents of this beloved neighborhood actively honor its history and culture, and visitors come from near and far to experience it. Tremé is home to celebrations like second-line parades and jazz funerals, museums dedicated to African American life, art, and history, as well as Armstrong Park, a memorial to the great jazz legend Louis Armstrong.

This family-friendly street festival and gospel festival are free and open to the public although donations are greatly appreciated.
