And just like that, we’re topping festival season off with the ever-blossoming Bayou Boogaloo! Originally started in 2006 to revive Mid-City and boost morale after Hurricane Katrina, this free three-day celebration is dedicated to NOLA’s resilience and deep love for community. From the bold sounds of top local performers floating over Bayou St. John, to the flavorful food and artisan booths, dive into the experience with our “must-do’s.”
