Tremé Bicentennial Celebration

DATE
Wed, Oct 17, 2012
through Sun, Oct 21, 2012
DETAILS

October 17-21

This dynamic New Orleans neighborhood will be commemorating its 200th birthday with a week long series of events honoring the people, history, and traditions of Tremé. It gave us jazz and second lines, and is particularly dear to us here at OZ' because it was home for 20 years. During the bicentennial check out our sign still affixed to the former station in Armstrong park! 

Visit the Tremé 200 website for more history and event information.
