The 2016-2017 Second Line Season ends later this month with two parades. The Perfect Gentlemen Father's Day Parade happens on Sunday, June 18, and the Uptown Swingers Second Line Parade a week later on June 25.

Summer Festivals & Fun

One of the great myths about life in New Orleans is the existence of something called "Festival Season" which, post-Jazz Fest, is technically over. In reality, it's always festival season in south Lousiana, a fact evinced by our copious listing of summertime music festivals and other diversions in and around New Orleans. Don't let the hot weather slow you down! Two festivals to note in particular: the French Market's Creole Tomato Festival, June 10-11, and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation's Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival, June 24-25.

Hospitality Tent Thank-yous

The WWOZ Hospitality Tent would like to thank volunteers, Brass Passers, and all Guardians of the Groove for an exciting and successful Jazz Fest season. It was great to see old and new faces in the tent! You should know that your support of WWOZ went beyond the station and beyond Jazz Fest grounds. This year, WWOZ’s Hospitality Tent was able to give over 550lbs of fruit to grassroots and non-profit organizations. The fruit was delivered to groups that prepare food daily or weekly for those in need of a meal in New Orleans. We here at WWOZ look forward to working with you every year to make this another great tradition. Stay Groovin’ and stay tuned.

Recipe: Lemon Meringue Pie from Walter "Wolfman" Washington

It's June, which means high summer. For a cool bite, it's hard to beat a sweet, tart lemon meringue pie strait from the refrigerator. This version of the recipe was contributed by Walter "Wolfman" Washington to That Sounds Good, our collection of recipes by New Orleans musicians.
