Treme Creole Gumbo Festival 
Time: 11:00 a.m. to 7:15 p.m.
 
The festival is a celebration of New Orleans' Treme neighborhood and the melting pot of cultures that led to the creation of jazz - as symbolized by the city's most famous culinary delight, gumbo. One of four free festivals produced and presented by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, the Treme Creole Gumbo Festival celebrates the melting-pot culture of New Orleans - with brass bands, New Orleans jazz and a huge selection of the best gumbo in town.
