Music, food and fun are served in great supply during the annual Soul Fest presented by AARP.
Over 20,000 visitors converge upon the Zoo for one of New Orleans’ biggest celebrations of African American history. The two day family-oriented event features live musical performances by local Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, and Gospel artists at our Capital One Stage!
Visitors can purchase authentic soul food prepared by local restaurants and caterers, and also enjoy the Zoo's collection of exotic animals! Festival goers have the chance to visit with local health, education and social service organizations and receive valuable wellness and lifestyle information.
Soul Fest is always free with Zoo admission or Audubon membership.
No outside food, beverages, or tents allowed. Portable chairs and blankets are welcomed.
Thanks to all of our 2018 sponsors! Soul Fest presented by AARP, sponsored in part by The Bardell Company, Marathon Petroleum, LP and Ron Austin & Associates.
