Down River Festival

August 26th, 2018

Join us on Saturday, September the 8th at the 6th annual Down River Fest. Our students have been invited to mentor the community in how to make planters from recyclable materials. Find us at the Kids’ Tent from 11am-5pm and make your very own recycled planter. 

The festival celebrates the environmental, cultural, and economic impact of the Mississippi River and the land it built through live music, panels, children’s activities, and walking tours that explore this year’s theme “Gumbo and Daiquiris.”  Festival events occur at the New Orleans Jazz Museum at the Mint and French Market from 10:30 am to 8:00 pm. Enjoy the last taste of summer with delicious gumbo and your favorite daiquiris from six local festival food vendors. We hope to see you there!
