RiverFest 2013 has been postponed until the fall.
Watch for a new date in coming weeks!
RiverFest™ is presented annually to celebrate the cultural
contributions of Old Algiers. This growing festival, now in its eighth year, is dedicated to preserving and promoting the traditional
jazz and other indigenous sounds that came of age along the banks
of the Mississippi River. A FREE authentic
New Orleans cultural experience that features performances by some
of the top names in traditional jazz, Gospel choirs, brass bands
and Mardi Gras Indians, RiverFest™ also offers local cuisine,
local and regional arts and crafts and children's activities.

JAZZ NOTES CLASSROOM PROGRAM
The classroom program is available to any school. It includes lesson
plans for lower elementary, middle school and high school students.
As a culmination of the lessons, local musicians will visit the
schools to perform and explain the influence of early jazz sounds
and rhythms on their music.
If you would like to volunteer to help with the development of the festival, or if you would like to help on site on April 6 &7, 2013, please email email@example.com.
Opportunities include the following:
• Fund raising/Sponsorship
• In-Kind donations
• On-site beer sales
• On-site set up and break down

Presenting a festival, even a small one, requires a lot of resources.
Sponsors are key to any event such as this. Old Algiers RiverFest™
is seeking sponsors who see the value of promoting the rich jazz
tradition that came from Old Algiers in the first half of the 20th
century and who can benefit from the audiences that it reaches.
