Essence Music Festival - Coming Home Party

The 13th annual Essence Music Festival is "Coming Home" to New Orleans! Too many amazing singers and bands to name here ~ just a few to give you the idea :) Beyonce, Common, Mary J Blige, Ne-Yo, Chuck D & Public Enemy, Chris Brown, Steve Harvey, Ludacris, Ruben Studdard, Ciara ~ WOW! The performances are being staged at the revitalized Superdome.

In addition to the music, which would be reason enough to attend, there will be lots more to do. A FREE series of seminars with the mission of "Claiming our city... claiming ourselves." All sessions in Hall D of the Morial Convention Center.

The Essence Marketplace will showcase a hundred artists, crafts, jewelry, clothing, quilts, paintings, demonstrations & art. You can purchase books & meet some of the authors at The Book Emporium. The Marketplace will be open at the Ernest N Morial Convention Center every day of the Fest, from 9:30am to 5:30pm and admission is FREE.

You can also volunteer to be part of this wonderful festival. If you are interested, be sure to contact the volunteer director, Anthony Aramburo, before June 22nd. ( 504 ) 410-6129
