The Tremé Creole Gumbo Festival and the Congo Square Rhythms Festival are back! These two beloved festivals are combining into one grand event with multiple stages, vendors, and arts markets. The festivals will happen concurrently on the weekend of March 25 to 27, 2022 at Armstrong Park/Congo Square. Both events are celebrating the Faubourg Tremé neighborhood, the birthplace of both jazz and so much of the cherished local culture of New Orleans. 

Admission to the park is free and open to the public.

The festivities will open with John Boutté and Family, featuring special guests Tanya Boutté & Arséne DeLay live in concert at the George and Joyce Wein Jazz & Heritage Center (1225 N. Rampart Street) on Friday, March 25 at 8pm. This show is sold out but will be broadcast and video streamed live by WWOZ! And on Saturday and Sunday, you can catch our live video stream from the Congo Square Rhythms Festival at or on our Facebook page.
