Head on out to the TREME CREOLE GUMBO FESTIVAL - Saturday and Sunday! The melting pot culture of New Orleans - as symbolized by the city's most famous culinary delight, gumbo - is the focus of the Treme Creole Gumbo Festival.
This year's event features an all brass band lineup. For two full days, a who's who of the city's top groups will perform in beautifully refurbished park. Food vendors will offer their unique takes on gumbo, the dish whose African ancestry helped to define New Orleans cuisine. This year, we present six of New Orleans' best makers of our signature dish - including the long-awaited return of Dunbar's Creole Restaurant, the famous Li'l Dizzy's Cafe of Treme and television personality Miss Linda (a.k.a. "The Ya-Ka-Mein" Lady). In between dancing and eating, don't forget to check out the large arts market.
