Congo Square New World Rhythms Festival
Every spring, New Orleans celebrates our African roots at the Congo Square Rhythms Festival, with live music, soul food, a wonderful arts market and a kids area.
Come see Mardi Gras Indians, watch traditional African dancing, and hear New Orleans' favorite brass bands and players of jazz, soul-funk, Latin jazz and West African highlife music.
The Congo Square Rhythms Festival is produced and presented by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. View the entertainment line-up and learn more about their mission here.
