Treme Creole Gumbo Festival

>

Brass bands and gumbo – one a delicious treat for your ears, the other a delicious treat for your taste buds. Both are celebrated over the second weekend in November at the annual Tremé Creole Gumbo Festival, which also celebrates the long heritage of what is believed to be the oldest neighborhood of free African Americans in the United States.

The festival is staged in Congo Square in the corner of Louis Armstrong Park, as well as in other sections of the park on North Rampart Street between St. Peter and St. Philip streets, directly opposite the French Quarter.

The highlight of the festival, in addition to the gumbo and other uniquely New Orleans culinary delights, is the wonderful traditional New Orleans brass sounds performed by renowned artists, many of whom grew up in the historic Tremé neighborhood. Performers have included the Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band, Tremé Brass Band, the all female Pinettes brass band, the Hot 8 and many more.

You will discover some of the best gumbo cooking to be found anywhere in the world. Representing the cultural mix of New Orleans, gumbo is a type of soup that is a signature dish at many of the city's great restaurants, several of which always maintain a presence at the festival. Its base is a thick roux, a seasoned combination of flour and oil, that makes gumbo so hearty.

The ingredients of gumbo vary from one chef to another but generally there is seafood gumbo with some combination of shrimp, crab, crawfish, oysters and other types of fish, and sausage gumbo with okra, chicken, sausage (including spicy andouille) and onions. It is served with white rice and should be at least mildly spicy. The sign of a good gumbo is, when you bite into it, it should bite back!

Many other signature New Orleans dishes are available at the festival, including red beans and rice, fried chicken, various catfish plates and desserts including bread pudding.

There is also an artists area with many colorful, uniquely creative handicrafts, clothing and accessories for sale.

Bayou Classic

>


The annual Bayou Classic is a weekend of tradition, fun and football cherished by fans of Grambling State and Southern University. What started out four decades ago as a simple football game between two historically black universities has evolved into one of New Orleans biggest and most-anticipated sporting events.

Every Thanksgiving weekend, fans of both teams descend on the city, turning the French Quarter and downtown areas into seas of black and gold (Grambling) and blue and gold (Southern). In a lead up to the big game – the Bayou Clash – fans are treated to a parade, a fan festival, empowerment and career seminars and a Battle of the Bands. Then on Saturday after Thanksgiving, it all culminates at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome when the Tigers and the Jaguars go paw to paw.

The rivalry between the two schools dates back to the 1930s when the two teams began playing each other yearly. Things got more intense when the series was named the Bayou Classic in 1974 and moved permanently to New Orleans. Over the years, both teams have produced an astounding number of players who went on to the NFL and other professional football leagues, some of whom are enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame such as Willie Davis who played for the Green Bay Packers and Charlie Joiner of the San Diego Chargers.

 Longtime beloved Grambling head coach, the late Eddie Robinson, who led his team to the first five Bayou Classic triumphs, is the winningest coach in NCAA Division I football history with 408 victories.

On Thanksgiving Day, the Grambling Marching Tigers and the Southern Human Jukebox lead the annual Bayou Classic Thanksgiving Day Parade from the Superdome to the French Market. The parade showcases floats, marching bands, military units, alumni groups, motorized units and elements of the Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club, New Orleans’ oldest predominantly African-American Mardi Gras parading organization.

Then on Friday, the bands compete in the annual Battle of the Bands – an event almost as exciting as the game itself because of the prestige and popularity of these schools’ two bands and their fabulously choreographed moves. Saturday before the game is Fan Fest at Champions Square next to the Superdome. There is entertainment, food and drinks for sale and musical performances.

For those without tickets, the Bayou Classic will be on TV in just about every bar and restaurant in New Orleans, with many having viewing parties with food and drink specials for the game.

Several hotels, including the Hyatt Regency adjacent to the Superdome, offer special discount rates to Bayou Classic attendees. You can view a list of these hotels and their rates as well all kinds of weekend details at www.mybayouclassic.com.
