5h Annual Treme Creole Gumbo Festival
(Published: November 04, 2013)

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation will serve hot gumbo and even hotter music this weekend in Louis Armstrong Park at the fifth annual Treme Creole Gumbo Festival. The free festival features music, crafts, Creole food and more.

"[W]e programmed nothing but brass bands," says Scott Aiges, Director of Programs, Marketing and Communications for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. "This year we've expanded to include more bands that are inspired by the same culture that inspires brass bands, like our headliner Glen David Andrews."

Andrews performs Saturday, along with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra Brass Band, Treme Brass Band, Hot 8 Brass Band and the Lagniappe Brass Band with Keedy Black. Sunday features Robin Barnes, John Boutte, the all-female Pinettes Brass Band, Bonerama, Baby Boyz Brass Band and the Second-Line Jammers Social Aid & Pleasure Club. Also taking the stage Sunday is The Madd Wikkid's Brassft Punk, a brass band tribute to Daft Punk.

There will be gumbos galore from vendors including the Ya-Ka-Mein Lady Ms. Linda Green, Woody's Fish Tacos, The Praline Connection, Dunbar's Soul Food, Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse, Cafe Carmo, Li'l Dizzy's and Brocato's Eat Dat.

New this year is a vegan gumbo cook-off with celebrity judges, but Aiges is quick to note that meat-based gumbos are available, even though they are ineligible for the contest.

The festival is sponsored by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. "This is one of four free festivals we produce each year," Aiges says. "We pay for this as a way to give back to the community."

The festival takes place from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
