What’s better than delicious food and a free party in one of the best cities in the country? We’ll wait.

This month, The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and Foundation will host the 12th annual Treme Creole Gumbo Festival in conjunction with the Congo Square Rhythms Festival. For two days (November 16 and 17), the city will celebrate the oldest Black neighborhood in the city while serving up bowls and bowls of the NOLA staple.

If you aren’t a big fan of gumbo there will be plenty of other Creole favorites to indulge in including red beans and rice, crabmeat beignets, deep-fried bell peppers, jambalaya, and po-boys.

In addition to the eats, there will be live music from bands playing everything from jazz to soul.

During the weekend, two markets will be set up and selling crafts, jewelry, and unique handmade gifts from local artists.

If you happen to be in the area, you should definitely think about adding this to your plans. To learn more about the free festival or for additional info and times, check out the website here.
