TAKING IT TO THE STREETS
2018 Tremé Fall Festival
The Tremé Fall Festival is produced by the Historic Faubourg Tremé Association to benefit the many cultural destinations found within historic Tremé. Last year’s festival benefitted St. Augustine Church and the Tomb of the Unknown Slave. Proceeds from the festival are currently being used to paint the church exterior and perform much-needed building repairs.
The festival is located at the intersection of Henriette Delille and Governor Nicholls Street, in the St. Augustine Church yard.

Tremé Fall Festival is produced by the Historic Faubourg Tremé Association (HFTA) to support the architecture, culture, and history of Tremé as well as fight blight, crime, and grime. HFTA is a not-for-profit 501c3 organization.
HFTA has provided over $50,000 to help restore the nation’s oldest African-American church, St. Augustine Catholic Church, now celebrating its 176th anniversary this October.
