Music, food, and fun were served in great supply during the 15th Annual Soul Fest presented by AARP.
Thousands of visitors converged upon the Zoo for one of New Orleans’ biggest celebrations of African American culture. The two-day family-oriented event featured live musical performances by local rhythm & blues artists The Soul Mystics, and by Partners N Crime on the Zoo’s Capital One Bank Stage!
Festival-goers also visited with representatives of small businesses, local health, education, and social service organizations.
Guests were able to purchase soul food prepared by local restaurants and caterers and enjoy a stroll through the world-class Audubon Zoo.
