On Sunday, May 8th 2016, the Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club Inc., will host the first annual Zulu on the Bayou Festival. This event will be held on the banks of the Historic Bayou St. John in Mid City. Encompassing the elements of the neighborhood and community, Zulu will showcase the best local artists combined with delectable creole and soul food offerings from some of the city’s finest vendors.

Original arts and crafts will be available in the African Village area of the Festival. There will also be a Zulu store featuring official Zulu items. King Zulu and the Zulu Characters will make a special appearance and close the festival by leading the second line back to the Zulu headquarters on Broad and Orleans.

Zulu is a non-profit 501 (c) 7 community based organization. Since 1909 Zulu has been a part of the fabric of the City of New Orleans. World renown for its annual Mardi Gras parade, Zulu has been a leader and cultural icon for more than century. Over the course of the years Zulu has been known for its deep community ties. No stranger to giving back, this festival will offer the very best of New Orleans to all Mothers of our community. Zulu will also observe a moment of silence dedicated to mothers that have lost children due to violence in our city.
