Tremé and the 7th Ward have given life to some of New Orleans’ (and the world’s) most famous works of art, music, and culture.
To celebrate these historic, thriving areas, the Tremé/7th Ward neighborhoods host an annual, free spring festival (usually every Memorial Day Weekend) that features neighborhood tours, bar crawls, a Gospel breakfast, and a Congo Square second line!
Under the Bridges Arts and Culture Festival
This free two-day music festival is open to the public and takes place in the spring under I-10 between Basin Street & St. Bernard Avenue along North Claiborne Avenue. Attendees can expect to see live music legends, local cuisine, and crafts, as well as community organizations and city partners who will share the history and significance of these neighborhoods.
Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Gospel breakfast, Congo Square second line, tours of the neighborhoods, panel discussions, and more.
