Algiers Folk Art Festival Celebrates Louisiana Culture
Louisiana music and art lovers, get ready to enjoy some of New Orleans best at the Algiers Folk Art Festival to be held on November 4, 2017 from 1-7 PM at Algiers Folk Art Zone and Blues Museum, 207 Leboeuf St. in the Algiers section of New Orleans! This area is referred to as Algiers Point or simply the Point and is a quaint section of New Orleans on the Westbank of the Mississippi River where you can see both the river and New Orleans’ skyline. Historically, Algiers Point was established as a part of the land grant that was given by the Company of the Indies in 1719 to New Orleans’ founder Sieur de Bienville. It has been around for quite a while and has always been a gathering place for musicians. In fact, in 1911, there were 36 music and dance halls in Algiers. Today, sections of Algiers Point are still dedicated to music and contain recording studios and the Jazz Walk of Fame that pays homage to many of the New Orleans musical legends. The Algiers Folk Art Festival features musicians including Little Freddie King, Bruce “Sunpie” Barnes, and the Confetti Park Players kid’s chorus.This free festival consists of artists’ tents, live music and food truck concessions.
