The festival takes place Saturday, September 30, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the grounds of St. Augustine Church with Friday and Sunday events to be included in the weekend festivities. Proceeds from the festival will benefit the iconic church.
Local artist Bryan Brown, member of Axiom Artist Collective and part owner of Axiom Art Gallery on Freret Street, spoke about his involvement in the project.
“It was an honor to create the official poster for the 2017 Tremé Fall Fest,” said Bryan Brown in a statement to the press. “I sincerely appreciated the opportunity to work with Terrance Osborne and the Historic Faubourg Tremé Association as they continue the work to restore the St. Augustine Church.”
Hosted by HFTA, the Third Annual Tremé Fall Fest aims to showcase and celebrate the music, food and arts that are the foundation of Tremé’s rich and vibrant culture, and to raise funds to support the architecture, culture, and history of Tremé. The festival festivities are free and will include events from Friday, September 29, to Sunday, October 1.
