Tremé is known for its live music culture, second line parades, Mardi Gras Indians, Zulu Mardi Gras Krewe, and being the home to the Mahalia Jackson Theatre. Tremé is where many culture bearers were born, reared, or honed their craft.

HFTA aims to promote these many attributes and build upon residents and visitors cultural experience in Tremé so that everyone can understand why we are called the cultural cradle of New Orleans.

So come on down in the Tremé where me and my baby are all going crazy, buckjumping and having fun!!!
