Congo Square

Music and Dancing at the Local Culture Hub of New Orleans
In the early days, Africans, both slave and free, danced and made music here on Sundays, helping to maintain a cultural continuity between Africa, the Caribbean, and New Orleans. Today, important festivals and rallies take place in and around Congo Square.
