Our Neighbors across the street at Bourbon Street Rhythm and Ribs put on an annual festival at the end of the summer every year. This year they are stepping it up a notch and are teaming up with a new organization to host “Blacks, Whites, & Blues Festival” – an annual festival focusing on “providing the community with information on education, career opportunities, health and safety while showcasing local talents in entertainment.”
Yes, Blacks, Whites, & Blues Festival will be going on at the same time as Black Sheep Fest happening tomorrow – which isn’t that bad because this means you can check out both events! There will also be plenty of food for sale at Blacks, Whites, and Blues Festival. One downside though is that 11th street will be closed off in front of our direct lot, limiting access to our Black Sheep parking lot. Bands playing Black Sheep Fest will have to come in to our lot through the alley!
Some of the band schedule for Black, White, and Blues Festival can be seen on their website right here. Their festival also features a car show, games and activities, and more. Southtown Construction and Training and Bone L.L.C. across the street from Dumb Records are also involved as a sponsor. So this weekend the whole neighborhood has something going on!
