A fall weekend in Louis Armstrong Park, with brass bands and Gumbo? Let's do it.
The 5th annual Treme Creole Gumbo Festival will be filling Louis Armstrong Park with soul food and smokin' music November 10-11. The 2012 edition features an all-Brass-Band music lineup that includes The Dirty Dozen, The Soul Rebels, The Hot 8 and The Stooges.
Whether you're looking to get a jump start on that holiday shopping, or treat yourself to a little something special, the festival will also feature an arts market with local, hand-made art, jewelry and crafts.
11am -7:15pm both days. Admission is free (which is awesome!) thanks to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation.

We are attempting to raise a minimum of 25k necessary to rebuild Blackie Campo's Marina. The Campo's business has been the linchpin to this community for over 107 years; people have rebuilt because the Campos have rebuilt. They provide much more than fuel, ice and bait to sport anglers and commercial fishermen; they are the social hub, point of refuge and guardians of the community. Join us November 10th to help rebuild this cultural landmark. Kermit Ruffins will host the benefit concert featuring Glen David Andrews, Tommy Malone, The Wild Magnolias plus many more at the Howling Wolf doors open @ 7 pm, pre-show cocktail party in the Den from 6 - 8. 100% of proceeds will go to help rebuild the marina and the community as a whole. All donations are tax-deductible through Louisiana Environmental Action Network (LEAN).

Ladyfest New Orleans is a non-profit music, spoken word and arts festival organized by local women of all identities to showcase, celebrate and encourage the music, poetry, film, art and activism of women in New Orleans and to benefit local organizations that support women. We are committed to inspiring self-empowerment and we welcome and encourage all people who support the education, advancement, and celebration of women to attend the festival. We feel that providing a venue for women artists counters the obstacles and discrimination that women often face, including sexism, homophobia and racism. Our intended objective is the creation of an annual festival where women can perform with other women (and men) in a safe, dominantly female-friendly, non corporate environment. Ladyfest is open and inviting to both men and women, of all ages and backgrounds.
