Soul Fest 2011

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.
