In celebration of Black History Month, Audubon Nature Institute is proud to host the 11th Annual Get Yah Praise On at Audubon Zoo. The event is a hand clapping, foot stomping good time for the entire family and features a great gospel music showcase with a soul stirring line-up of local and regional gospel performers.

  • This event is included with Zoo admission and complimentary for Audubon members.
  • No tents allowed. Portable chairs and blankets are welcomed.

Get Yah Praise On will feature home-grown gospel; a day of soul-stirring gospel and contemporary music with local artists Kim Chere, Drea Marie, Robert Boyd, Pastor Jai Reed and Grammy nominated gospel artist, Isabel Davis! The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office's Band of Excellence will be another special musical guest, and DJ SoCray will spin the 1's & 2's! New Orleans radio personality Loretta Petit will serve as Guest Emcee.

The event will also be highlighted by a special wellness fair hosted in conjunction with local law enforcement, faith-based, and addiction/recovery organizations. The wellness fair is being held in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration and will provide valuable information in the war against opioid addiction in our community.
