The "future site of the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park," Louis Armstrong Park is located in the Fauberg Tremé, right outside the French Quarter on North Rampart Street. Armstrong Park was created to honor New Orleans' favorite son, the great Louis Armstrong, and to preserve the site of Congo Square.
The Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival returns to Louis Armstrong Park June 11-12, 2022! This free festival, presented by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, celebrates the rich traditions of southwest Louisiana. The combination of rollicking two-step music and spicy seafood is a potent example of how we in Louisiana love to "pass a good time."
If you can't be there in person, WWOZ will be broadcasting and video streaming live from the festival!
