Soul Fest 2011

American Alligator

Good in a kabob.

Mardi Gras parades are still filling the streets, but soon the masks will be removed and the floats stored or dismantled. Fortunately, there are still be plenty of reasons to visit New Orleans after Mardi Gras. Come to enjoy the city with fewer crowds, and come to relish the food. Another good reason to book a room in a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast is Soul Fest.

Soul Fest takes place each year at the Audubon Zoo. It’s a celebration of Soul food and Soul music, as well as greater African American culture, music, food and crafts. This year, Soul Fest follows on the heals of Mardi Gras, on March 12 and 13, 2011. Book a room in an Uptown New Orleans Bed and Breakfast, and walk to Soul Fest.

Soul Fest takes place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday, and is free with Audubon Zoo admission. Stop by for lunch of fried Louisiana alligator kabob or an early dinner oft sausage po-boy and a slice of sweet potato pie.

Visit Soul Fest for more information about the 2011 festival.

Many people travel to New Orleans and Louisiana specifically to experience Cajun culture first hand through food and music. If this sounds like you, head to a New Orleans bed and breakfast this weekend, November 6 and 7, 2010, and attend the Louisiana Swamp Festival. This is a great opportunity to learn about the traditions, food and music of the Acadian people who came to Louisiana in the 18th century.

Historically, Cajun culture was predominant in what is now called the Acadiana region of Louisiana, where the Acadians settled after being expunged from the Canadian Acadia. This area west of New Orleans is still home to a large Francophone population today. The north section of Acadiana consists of dry prairies and rolling hills, but the south gives way to the marshes and bayous typically associated with Cajun culture.
